# 1 132 is profane?
12-29-2012, 04:56 PM
How on Earth does the number 132 count as profanity?

Because it's 1 then 2 then 3. I mean come on, everyone knows that.

That's really bizarre. It really is marked as profane.

This can't go on I must inform the law
Can this still be real or just some crazy dream
But I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes
They seem to mesmerise me ... can't avoid their eyes
132 the number of the beast
132 the one for you and me

Oy... this game's profanity filter uses 1337 as part of it's vocabulary.

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...
HAIL HYDRA!

That's stupid, in my opinion. The profanity filter should only filter real profanity, not esoteric crap like that. Even if someone understood what 00100 00100 meant (step 1), and then knew that 132 stood for it (step 2), that would be nothing more than an inside joke. It certainly wouldn't be offensive.

They need to have someone go through and remove a lot of the stuff that is currently filtered. It seems like they just fed in some sort of database that covers everything.

In my opinion they should use the forum profanity filter database. Anything we can write here on the forum including damn, 132, etc. should be allowed.

I agree. The filters are way too drastic. At one point they filtered "Commandant" for unknown reasons...

and yet they don't filter actual profanity (some very nasty words get through)

What about profanity actually used in the show or films?
