not to belabor my disgust for those in charge here, but it has not gone unnoticed that not a single staff member chimed in to describe any reasons for the mute or any action that will be taken in the future so mutings based on a bot might not be problematic. 

the word in question-h o m o sapien-was discussed in a topic here many months ago. obviously, the concerns were ignored.

On the first page (post 20) martin says Elroch got caught by the auto filter.

missing the point. martin is not staff.

write h o m o sapien without the spaces and see what happens. 

that it takes months for this to be addressed goes to my thought that cc is simply following the lead of facebook.

Oh, yeah, not staff.

I did write "that" just to check a few days ago, and I got the red banner tongue.png

But what's with that word, anyway? It is supposed to be despective?

It's an insult for gays.

I see, thanks. So, at the end of the day, it takes a human to do the work of a bot.

I mean... it's a fairly... how to say it... casual pejorative. Certainly it's not something you would call an acquaintance during a polite conversation (!) but for non-native speakers of US English, I'm just trying to clarify, that it doesn't rank very highly among bad words you can use to disparage someone for their sexual preference.

That's why a few of us sort of chuckle when we type "the h word" because it's like we're little kids who don't want to say something like "poop." Would you call your grandmother "poop" in a non-joking way? Of course not, it would be fairly horrible if you did. But when you think of bad words you can call someone, "the h word" is not the first word that comes to mind (or 2nd, or 3rd... 10th... ).

"it doesn't rank very highly among bad words you can use"

Rest assured that the bot and it filter prohibits many bad words in addition to the H word.

I rest assured that “censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it.”
