Yeah, but then the props wouldn't be in order. I've got them labeled 001, 002, 003, etc. 1E2 would screw it up.

You can type Bitched, but not 132. Just some fun trivia! LOL

I just turn my filter off. People swear a lot in STO (me included) and apart from fighting with cryptic stuff like 132 it makes reading ESD chat rather confusing when it's on.

GEEZE OP! Do you kiss your mom with that mouth.
I use to do 100K DPS, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

900k is filtered due to this...

IIRC someone explained 132 as being due to it's representation in Binary: 00100 00100

yeah..... 99.99% of the people in the game don't know that. although that probably changed to 99.98% just from me posting the explanation...
binary is 8/16/32/64 bit, not 10.
10000100 = 132
128 + 4

Yes, that's correct but by adding additional 0s at the front you can make what was an 8-digit binary number into a 10-digit binary number without affecting the value.

00100 00100

0 * 512 + 0 * 256 + 1 * 128 + 0 * 64 + 0 * 32 + 0 * 16 + 0 * 8 + 1 * 4 + 0 * 2 + 0 * 1 = 128 + 4 = 132

I suspect the filters are a third party library? Because the same goof-ups are in most games these days, almost like there is ONE vendor selling the filter. I have seen games filter their own mob names, gear names, made up words, and so on. And its inconsistent -- I have seen them allow a name for a player then filter it in the chat when you speak to the person by name.


IMHO they need to remove the profanity filter (or put in a basic one that blocks the actually offensive words) and put in a forced auto-correct grammar and spelling system in its place!

Not really. Everything in a computer is still in binary: text (modern) is 2 bytes of binary per char for unicode stored in long running chunks (some thousands of bits long). Basic floating point is still 80 bit binary blobs (has not changed in a long time). Large integer classes use "characters" (modern text mentioned above) to represent large values, for example encryption keys that are 256 or 512 or whatever bits long. The same is done for extreme precision floating point (compute PI to 100 billion digits type stuff). But at the end of the day, binary is just a numerical base, just like base 10. You can use as many digits as you want. Sure, the internal CPU registers are limited; most are 32 or 64 these days and have leading zeros because you can't have a no-bit value in our hardware representation of binary (remember all this is used because deep inside, a circuit either has power (1) or not (0) ) but that is just a human representation of the abstract, an artificial limitation that is convenient given the way we build computers today.

I did notice that you can't use the word 'taint'.
It will let you use 'tain' and 'aint' but not 'taint'. That was the strangest one I came across.

Well, there IS an obscure use for that word(a body part) that could be considered profane... possibly. But the common usage is not that.
