    I suppose -- not speaking for USMB -- it has to do with advertisers. If you notice, we have a LOT of white and black racists on the board. The idea is to let them CONFRONT each other in LIMITED topics and have a discussion. Giving them the n-word is like the nuclear option. We don't want that escalation. It's not neccessary to the purpose of allowing free confrontation thru discussion.

    Advertisers use their own sources to "filter" candidate sites. That's why the "no genitals or titties" rules is here. And because folks will push the limits -- that includes plastic, marble, or rubber or other materially constructed genitals and titties as well. :lmao:

    Because the advertisers -- or more SPECIFICALLY -- the advertising BUNDLER will harass us until we fix it.

    But it's okay to show a "titty" if the nipple has a little pasty on it. :rolleyes-41: You should say nipples aren't allowed here.

    Adding words to the word filter, at least on other software such as vBulletin, or SMF (and others) is super simple and easy to do.

    That's informative and damn sad!

    Coming from Google, It's like a Roach Motel, once you check in, you can't check out. You're stuck.

    (Unless you wipe everything and don't sign into Google next time) FYI: Once ou sign into Google on a phone, you cannot sign out, ever!

    (Well, you can wipe the OS and start anew) Guess who's OS it is? That's right! It's Google's :spinner:

    It's really Linux with some Google "Track your ass" addons.

    As someone here has mentioned before: They have too much power.
