Description: Create a program to automatically delete names, speech, and graffiti that contain racial slurs. I'd rather not see characters with names like this, for example: http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=823822

Discussion (Disallow racial slurs in character names, speech, graffiti)

Should be easy to implement. There's already a filter to cut out swearing on the radio, adding a similar filter to in-game speech and graffiti to remove hate-speach should be easily done, and by all means, already should have been done.

While I do agree with the intention, there's nothing easy about choosing which words to filter. For a little perspective on how many racial slurs there are, check Wikipedia's list. Swear words are much easier to deal with than racial slurs, and racial slurs, by their nature, often have a double meaning, making them both difficult to identify and easy to circumvent. --Aichon 18:00, 19 September 2009 (BST)
