Just an odd random question. I don't seem to see it addressed anywhere, but on a site devoted to marriage and adult relationships, what's with all the censors? I mean...we're all adults. We also all have figured out how to get around said censors and know exactly what posters are trying to say.
The purpose is to keep some of the most offensive language off of the site.
When I started TAM, I wanted the site to be a place that people from all walks of life felt comfortable posting on.
I admit, that the site will never appeal to everyone, and that it is easy to get around swear filters; nevertheless, the censorship feature discourages the use of those words and lets people know that we don't approve of it in a subtle way.
The website filters are funny though. They don't recognize longer words and turn the filter off for those. For example, you can't talk about having a ****tail (c0cktail). Nor will you be able to talk about your friend ****** (A$hley).
