Hi! I believe cussing should NOT be allowed on wwww.armorgames.com
First, there are younger children on here who don't like to see it because they are too young to see it.
Next, some people are old enough to see it, but maybe they don't like it period.
Finally, maybe www.armorgames.com should automatically put  a * when they detect a cuss word! It would make much more sense due to some children on here who CANNOT see it because they are not allowed to...what do you think? Please respond! I want to see what you think! Cussing bothers me and I know it is bad...I just want to see what others are thinking...but please...don't just put random cussing things on here... Thank you very much... and also... Armorgames rocks! :D

They already do censor swearing.

Several things:

1) It is possible to bypass the profanity filter, but doing so is considered worse than swearing normally. If the filter is bypassed, you will see a swear word in a different form.
2) As GhostOfMatrix said, there is a profanity filter, but your definition of swearing is broader than the definition programmed into the filter.

Because, you know, hell isn't anything other than a "location"

While the discussion is here..I strongly believe (as do many others..including at least on, un-named, mod) that r@pe shouldn't be censored

Hell isn't really that offensive. It is also is needed to have discussion with religion. Sure, you can use it offensively but it is a word needed for discussion.

Besides, nearly every other "Cuss" word is placed under asterisk.

Eg.

****
*********
******************
*******
***********************************************************

I think you can be more offensive using regular words than using "Hell".

AG set the rules and its their decission which words are blocked by their filter, and thats ok.
If you want a "clean"-site for everyone... well, then you have to ban out 1/10 of a lexicon (yes, i overstate here... conscious^^).
