"Try telling someone asking for an NPC's location to check the C**** District in Stormwind... yeah."I laughed so hard when I saw this! Only because it brought back memories of the chat system in another game I used to play. There were no filtering options... if the word was deemed offensive, it just got splatted for everyone. The problem was it also got splatted when it was just part of another word. Grapes, for exampls. You couldn't eat grapes, you'd be eating "g****s". And the people who were really into figuring out the mechanics behind everything spent hours ****yizing their spreadsheets. The real kicker was that cockles was an item in the game, so it cracked us all up whenever some new person asked where to find "****les".Really... forced censorship doesn't work. It just encourages the usage of the words in order to highlight how ridiculous the censorship is.
