Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you're at a smartscore of 76 and you're not aware of the filter? #weird with the state of OS right now, I would expect anyone at all who joins the site to know about the word filter within 24 hours of site use lol but oh well. just don't use censored words ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Saso, not everyone uses chat or talks to other users. So there is a chance she...or..he.. may not have known of the filter. :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Algebraic, its just so the troll users dont cuss people out and offend other users. If its filtered by a different word, no one will know what you're talking about. Thats all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well every now and then, you are most likely to find a stupid person in the chat who wants to cuss at ppl so the filter was made for them so that it reduces the effect of the real words, at least those words are less effective than the cuss words.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Naw, I was asking why someone would pick terms like 'feather' and 'fluttering'. You know what, just forget it. Something to do with an owl fetish; that's all I wanted to know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol owl fetish.... Its because the site is owl themed, because owls show wisdom and learning.. So the filter would change them to OWL words. Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do that, too, because people always send me questions thru PM, or they ask me really creepy questions.
