Why do you let people say bad words????

Seriously. 8 year olds can learn the d-word(NOT dumb) or c-word(rather not say) because you let it through the chat filter. Why do you let people say those words??

…Aren't words like those blocked by the censor?

The ST needs to improve the censor. I think they assume that kids don't know bad words so they don't include them all in the censor's blacklist.

They aren't blocked. I see people use them in project descriptions. Like this person said “holy {CENSORED}” in a project.

Those should be detected by the sensor…

The filter is still a work in progress, but I'm surprised that those were able to get through.


I'm running a small experiment, mind taking this?

The filter also does not catch the word p***y last time I checked.
Point is, the filter weren't meant to be a perfect barrier – if we take the F-word for example, the filter can catch the F-word, but it can never catch all the variations of it. You could space out letters, change the “u” to “e” or “a”, etc. The staff team is still dependent on the community to report these words, no matter how long the list gets, for computers can never be as precise as humans.

Yeah and I see people saying “f * * * k” a lot. I just report them.

The F-word is spelled with 4 letters last time I checked.

Frick is not even close to a bad word.

I was testing the bad word filter on the forums, and there's several swearwords that the filter doesn't block.

Most notably, the n word doesn't seem to be blocked in the forums. (DON'T SAY IT if you know what it is)

I was going to say the n word isn't blocked. I just edited my post to get rid of the swears that weren't blocked before somebody saw/quoted them.

Yeah, saying the C word (Not *, the one that refers to female private parts) is still able to be commented last I checked. Same with p***y.
Imo they should instead of spending time making events and stuff like scratch in space instead work on the censor.

forever
if <kumquat detected> then
Deploy epic ninja kumquat destroyer of doom
Kill kumquat brutally with sword of unfathomable power
end
end
That is a good software for kumquat protection. to get it, follow this guy and you're done.

The reason they don't do that is because some words that we see as bad words are written in the same way as some good words in other languages.

IKR and even worse, the n word is racist.

The point here is that the censor system isn't perfect and won't catch every single inappropriate word. Its meant to help the moderators in filtering out inappropriate content, but not as the primary tool for moderating.

Just because you see a bad word on Scratch doesn't mean its allowed. Chances are that the filter missed it, which means that its your job to report it so the moderators can remove it and take appropriate action.

Pun of the week: I've really been itching to come up with Scratch puns. I better not do anything rash.
