That box is disabled. Thanks for talking about a completely different game's method of dealing with profanity though.

It also censors totally innocent hungarian words like "door" or "table" . But then again I disable it instantly so its not a problem.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

Hey, I'm just saying you can disable it. And as for overzealous goes, it could be far far worse... And I gave an example of how worse it can be.

curious, considering the number of ships names I've seen that legitimately should have been snagged by the filter.

I was talking to my friends the other night on one of my alts who still had the profanity filter on. In innocent conversation the word fart came up and I noticed it got censored. Fart?! really? I think about all the terrible ship and character names I've seen over the years, but fart is banned. What a galaxy lol.

You could call it the RXS Gratia and avoid the problem all together. Same meaning just without the preposition. Which as it is a name, is wholly unneeded anyway if you're into your grammar.

Why are you asking me? I have not a clue about an excalibur class nor said anything about it.

I had a similar problem when trying to name my Klingon ship the I.K.S. Ex Inferis, but I managed to get around the problem by removing the space in the name, so it's now the I.K.S. ExInferis. Just a suggestion.

Nope, the one that tells you you can't use a given name. Good luck ignoring that one.

Yeah those filters mess up chat in other languages.

For example "tard" in French means "late". You use that word a lot when you play video games... but it gets filtered lol !!
