On a daily basis we get threads regarding this topic which devolve into endless autistic screeching, moralizing, thinly veiled or mask off reactionary judgements, essentialism, bastardization of materialism, conflation of gender and sex, liberal crybullying, woke scolding, false flagging, without the conversation ever moving anywhere and overall it's just very tiresome to deal with to the point that it would be necessary to do something about this before it completely undermines the already lack luster quality of the site.
If nothing is done, we might as well all just stop posting here and leave the Culture Warriors to do their thing until they cause yet another split. egoism Egoism

If the site mods plan to continue the usage of word filters on slurs, it should at least be applied evenly to other slurs of historically marginalized folks instead of simply the pair of slurs or so that are currently in effect.
Frankly, though, the filters should be removed. There are excellent posts posted that become incomprehensible to nonimageboard users because of the word filters. Instead the rules should be made more accessible and probably better enforced against raiders and slide threads, which are far more detrimental than a couple of bad words. Also, the mods should post always with the modtag on while they are on their tenures. albania Albania

As an a transhumanist (like, an actual anarcho-transhumanist) it has been mildly annoying having the slur word filter lead to some accidental conflation. Particularly when there are reactionaries running around casting transgender people as some kind of capitalist-transhumanist plot. I did find the wordfilter funny though.

People are already annoyed by avatarfagging. I think that would simply increase discontent with moderators over non-issues.

In defense of the current slur filter: it's purpose isn't protecting any group. It's there to troll raiders.

What excellent posts are calling people offensive slurs?
