Default Censoring

I get some of the word censoring on here.... but things like double-u-tee-eff (the acronym) and the word w h o r e are stupid. Those are not swears, they are not offensive. If I say w h o r e, and it is asterisked out, it looks like I said something WAY worse. That is dumb. Maybe it is time to reconsider the word blocking on here.

Test WTF, SOL.

The word "w h o r e" is usually used as an insult, so no real need for that here.

WTF seems to be allowed, as are SOL. I personally don't have an issue with those because they have kind of developed a meaning at arms length from the swear words they originally incorporated. They seem to be acceptable in society as not being profane.

Kind of like SNAFU and FUBAR. Too precisely descriptive to outlaw...
