    Yeah fair enough - that's not really a swear word in this day and age.

    We've adjusted the filters so after Monday's release you should be able to say that when discussing the blackjack dealer's ability to draw an ace just when they need it :)

    Censorship is a funny thing - this site allows other words that would embarrass a truck driver but they took offense by crap!  How funny is that.

    Statistically speaking, very intelligent people tend to use cuss words more than less intelligent folks. It's true!

    I've been on sites where they censored the word Saturday, because it contains the word t*u*r*d, lol.  Pls CW don't fall into that trap.  Some censorship is good & necessary, but it can be taken way too far.

    I tried to name the Cocker Spaniel pet avatar we got a couple of months back 'Joe Cocker'... and it wasn't allowed, although CW specifically calls the pet avatar.... a Cocker Spaniel!  I found that to be mildly ironic and amusing :). No worries!  Then... I see some names of pet avatars, main avatars, and even party titles, and think to myself... Wow, how do they get away with that?! Just sayin' ;)

    Michael B17, I had the very same thing happen to me yesterday, with the contraction of those two words.

    This is exactly what I was talking about before in this thread, where the censorship algorithm goes way beyond what it should detect as unacceptable, and rejects totally innocuous words or word combinations 

    I also found out if you use the word "hitting", you can't precede it with any word ending in the letter "s", because the algorithm ignores the space between the two words, and perceives it as the "bad word" that is another name for c*r*a*p, lol.  I used both this "offensive" combination and the one in the previous paragraph several times in an Inbox reply message, and it literally took me 20 minutes to find and correct all the "bad words" I had unknowingly written, before I could send it.  I WAS NOT a happy camper!

    Agreed - this filtering is excessively aggressive.  We'll adjust it in a few weeks so we stop blocking this sort of stuff.  (Our filtering logic used to be used in kids games and we wanted to make sure nothing slipped through - not an issue in Casino World).

    well this is really odd because I see very rude user names that I'm shocked got through the system that had no business being allowed at all! they should have been blocked, "wet pussy" was allowed for a pet name and that's pretty suggestive and rude and really should have been censored and Ive seen names with the f word in it etc

    OMG.. Michael. LOL!!  They do this to get a rise obviously. I question their maturity.. but I'm making a judgement call aren't I :). You have the political names.. then you have the ones that may toe, or even cross the line on race, gender, sexual status, religion.. etc etc.. I mean, my word.. You're not going to stop this. The more attention given to this sort of nonsense and idiocy, the more frequently it will undoubtedly occur. 

    I still find it very amusing I am unable to name my pet 'Joe Cocker', even though the pet avatar's default pet name is 'Cocker Spaniel'... That is funny! 

    I can tell you with absolute certainty that it doesn't matter what you do, someone is going to be offended in one way of the other. However, personally I feel the filter is just a wee bit excessive? LOL.. My opinion of course.

    I do want to add this.. For those who want use names and various forms of offensive rhetoric meant to cause harm and/or ill will to others... Choose wisely; Karma does have a way of dealing with that. Jes sayin'! :D 

    Happy gaming... BE KIND... Have fun!  :DW

    So all this being said ;) it seemed unbelievable my phrase I used "crap hands" for my poker game seemed extremely ridiculous to say the least especially when we see really rude avatar names made it through the filter on this site lol

    so yes the filters need to change to fit adult maturity but it doesn't mean we want to be barraged by people swearing in the party rooms either.
