I should be able to say unnatural carnal knowledge on the internet. Who's it really hurting anyway?

Words have consequences.   Ask Donald Sterling. 
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

Yes, but whether or not I'm using certain words I could manage to be more crass.

Filtering out only a few curse words is silly.

I would rather see a people problem managed instead of putting a policy in place where certain words are replaced but others slip through. If people give us the gift of using certain derogatory language, or repeatedly attacking others, that allows us to nip the *actual* problem in the bud.

Perma-ban users, not select words.

I enjoy the curse filtering.
Not because I am holier-than-thou, as I drop more than my share of f-bombs daily.
I like it because it brings an almost-ironic component of civility to an inherently uncivil medium.
