Swear Filter for Comments

I'm getting a little frustrated at the otherwise constructive comments that I have to delete because, despite my best efforts to convince people not to, they feel like they have to drop an F-bomb to make their point.

Then the thought occured to me - what if there was an optional swear filter that's censor profanity? :D Any chance of it?

This is a good idea.

Sounds good, especially if you can choose what cusses are replaced and what with.

Can it be optional? I have little problem with cussing and curse filters have a tendency to make otherwise innocent words unintelligible, like cockroach and Scunthrope.

If we had this, my comic will turn into an Orbits commercial...


I so want.

It would be best if instead of replacing the words with other words, they just cencored them like @^*(##$. That way you know they are actually cencoring, and not just some of the normal nonsense people use.

Yeah, but if it's your choice, you can decide to do that for yourself. Ohers might feel differently, so could make a different decision. Besides, random nonsense is fun, don't you think?

Sounds good to me.

One question though. Would the swear filter have varying degrees? For instance, if I was OK with someone saying "damn" on my comments section but not with them dropping the F-bomb in my comments, could I set the filter to reflect this?

Make varying decrees would be hard. What about making it relative to the adult level of the comic. After all, if they want to see something involving someone being raped and murdered (not necessarily in that order), I think they would be more willing to accept swearing then someone who is looking at child safe comics, possibly with their kids.

If you could get to choose what you replace though, you could choose to only replace the F-bombs. You could also replace blaspheming if you don't like it. You could even decide to filter random everyday words to do innapropriate censoring :lol:

You can replace them with lollipops and unicorns! JK but it is a good idea.

This is smart. But it should be at the author's discretion as to whether or not they would like to use it, as opposed to just eliminating all profanity, because (this may seem weird, but bear with me) what seems like profanity to some people may actually in another part of the world be an actual everyday word. (For example: Be careful when you tell a German you're giving them a present: the word gift in German means "poison".) Different stroke for different folks, you dig?
