Man, I feel dirty just having migrated/created this page. --Guppymomma 16:49, 19 August 2005 (PDT)

Umm.... How would one turn "gay" back into black? AySz88^-^ 19:43, 14 September 2005 (PDT)
While "gay" isn't really a bad word, it's a filtered word and I treated all the filtered words the same. It seems like if there's an issue with it, then it should be sent as a comment to Three Rings asking about why it's filtered rather than asking to have it in black letters on the wiki. --Guppymomma 20:25, 14 September 2005 (PDT)
Yes. --Eurydice 20:26, 14 September 2005 (PDT)

"Gay" is offensive and is racist, there are nicer words to use than that. They still say it in the news though. --Lpmike 09:51, 17 May 2006 (PDT)

Can I ask, how is "gay" racist? I've seen people say that quite a bit lately and it confuses me. Is there a secondary meaning/connotation I'm not aware of? --Lizzie 03:56, 16 August 2006 (PDT)
To certain members of younger generations, "racist" has apparently become synonymous with "discriminatory." At least they get that it's wrong, though.
Unless they consider gay people to be of a differnt race, now there's segregation at it's highest form :p. --Theemperor 20:48, 29 June 2007 (PDT)

Also, on an unrelated note, this article of full of win, and not because of the whited out parts :D --Diamondblade 12:01, 25 May 2007 (PDT)


I seem to recall that any time you use the force-dropped words, you get auto-complained or something to that extent. Is that correct, and if so, should it be noted in the article? --Ponytailguy 10:39, 1 April 2006 (PST)

If so im in trouble because i was telling someone a story and it dropped the message cause of one of the words =X . --32083 10:47, 1 April 2006 (PST)

Well, remember... I'm still not sure if it works that way. It's purely hearsay at this point, but it sounds like something they might do. And I wouldn't read too deeply into it; I think everyone's said "Rape and pillage" at least once. Myself, I once had a chat message dropped because it said "/em sniggers", and don't seem to be any worse for the wear. --Ponytailguy 10:57, 1 April 2006 (PST)
Petition to Amphitrite, however, is conclusive: there is no auto-reporting. Chalk one up to status quo :) --Ponytailguy 14:30, 1 April 2006 (PST)

Additional filtered words for trinkets

Apparently there is a supplemental list of words that are okay to say in chat, but too vulgar to inscribe on a trinket! I cannot find any discussion of this on the forums. So far the only word I know in this class is "slave". How can we find others? Chupchup 22:36, 16 May 2012 (PDT)

That's much more problematic than the list here, because the current list can easily be found by searching in the client files (since the client is the one that does the filtering). Also, it is incredibly difficult to determine what word caused the issue (and how much of it, grape can't be used in pet names, but I doubt "grape" is explicitly filtered) because almost all trinkets can only be inscribed once (as far as I know, the fruitcake is the only exception). --Thunderbird 23:52, 16 May 2012 (PDT)

Gay word in filter

I see that they removed this word from the filter on Ice as was suggested somewhere in the Dark Seas thread. Gunnerfreak on Cerulean 18:43, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Recent release removed this word from the filter. Removing from the list. Gunnerfreak on Cerulean 16:56, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
