**** THE FILTER

So two weeks ago, I web-surf on over to my favorite World Wide Web Bulletin Board ChiefsPlanet.com expecting to engage in some lighthearted Chiefs-related banter. Instead, I'm greeted with a screen telling me I was banned for two weeks for filter evasion.

I could not for the life of me remember when I could have possible evaded the profanity filter. I literally had no idea what I had done to deserve the ban.

So I visited the board as a guest and tried to work my way through my old posts, and I found something in a Geno Smith related thread that finally jogged my memory: I spelled "****" without the "c." That was it.

It's completely ****ing ridiculous that filter evasion is a bannable offense. You really think people can't handle a misspelled swear word? Fine, delete the ****ing post. But there's no reason to ban somebody over that.

I've been surprised by filter evasion bans before. Once I absent-mindedly posted a .gif with a swear in it. Most bafflingly, I was once banned after I spelled "****" with multiple U's. In a case like that, it should be blindingly obvious to any ****brained ****face that I'm not "evading" the filter -- I'm changing how I spell the word to convey a certain meaning or attitude. The intent implied in the word "evasion" is simply not there, and banning should be about intent. Again, a simple deletion would suffice.

I know the counter-argument will be that I've obviously established a pattern of filter evasion, but here's the thing: because I'm not a Sunday School teacher from the 1950s, I'm not shocked by swear words. They don't register as remotely offensive to me. And since I have my filter turned off, I see a constant stream of uncensored swear words in all their ****ing glory. So it's insanely easy for me to forget, on a day-to-day basis, that there's an absurd profanity filter with an even more absurd enforcement policy, made even MORE absurd by the unchecked racism, misogyny, and homophobia that runs rampant on this board and yet is apparently not nearly as offensive as occasional misspelled swear words.

If somebody bombs a thread or the board with blatant, obnoxious attempts at evading the profanity filter, fine, ban them, whatever. But if somebody just slips up and posts a uncensored ****-word, just ****ing delete the post. That's it. Point made. It's goddamn annoying to get banned for TWO WEEKS over some truly minuscule bullshit like that.

AAAAANYWAY, I'm glad to be back! Draft Geno!

I don't know whether you knew you were lying at the time or whether your tiny taste of cyber-power just went to your head, but either way, the community was sold a bill of goods.

You'd better get back to moderator central command now. You never know when the opportunity to respond to an emergency filter evasion might come up and you sure don't want one of the other guys to handle (or worse, ignore) it.

I have no evidence, but Mr. Flopnuts bans me about 50 times a day just to **** with me. Like 50 1-minute bans at random intervals. Prick.

Whining about mods moderating is akin to posting and whining about neg reps. It is very unbecoming of a CP gentleman. Mods and neg rep should both be suffered in silence...
