Yeah, this game is as "wholesome" as a barrel of foresaken plague...



I wouldnt let my kid play, well maybe if they had all their shots and played in a hazmat suit. I have always said this game should be rated 16 up at the least, merely for the fact the vocabulary used in game is pretty adult content. And its mainly adults that do it lol

Some things aren't meant to be discussed in a game rated T for Teen?

Blizzard can control their content, they need to be pretty firm with what things we can say.


T for teen? yeah right, sure ESRB may say that, but the game is 60% 8-year olds...

want a real Teen game? do diablo :D

I love how homosexual is also sensored... didn't know my sexual orientation was considered bad by Blizzard.


Excuse me, I cant understand what you are saying is censored.

Is it Homosexual?

Cause i can read that. Must not be censored.

The Forum filter and the in-game filter don't always agree on what constitutes profanity.

I hear 83% of percentages are made up.

Because it isn't a word children should hear and its a "Mature" language filter not an "Offensive" language filter.
Children should not be exposed to sexuality of any kind until they are smart enough to turn the filter off.

it doesn't appear to be censored to me, at least not on the forums.

as for why it might be censored? think about it.

The fruit that wine is commonly made from is censored because it contains the word that means sexual assault in it. consider how the word !@#$ is commonly used, especially as a derogatory term.

WoW players in general can't be trusted to use certain items responsibly, which include, but are not limited to: last names, fully customizable tabards, a hefty helping of the English language, most sharp objects and canned pasteurized processed cheese food stored under pressure.

OP, if you are offended by Blizzard censoring the word then you will most likely be more sorry and more offended were they to allow it and people started using it in a derogatory manner. That is probably one of the reasons Blizzard censors it.

Transgender/gender dysphoria are not driven by sexual orientation or sexuality in any form.
