As of February 25th, 2015, there has been an major overhaul of the filter systems used in both chat and forums for RDI/DM. Starting on this date, both filters will use the same list, and it has been pared down to the following nine entries.

s h i t
f u c k
c u n t
c o c k s u c k e r
n i g g e r
n i g g a
f a g g o t
f a g
c u m

With this change, we remind you that the remaining words on the list are there for a reason. Skirting the filter, by either replacing a few letters with asterisks, or spaces, or taking advantage of the punctuation glitch, will be grounds for a warning and such examples will be modified without warning by the Admins. Considering just how many words have been released from the filter, it is not asking too much that you respect the rules in these remaining cases.

It is worth mentioning right now that ANY word or phrase with these in it, are going to be included, all variations. This applies to attempted sidestepping. Adding 'ing' or whatnot to the word is no different to abusing the filter, and will be grounds for a warning.

We also have to deal with the fact that this list may be too much to some, too little to others. This finalized list is NOT up for debate. We realize that your mileage may vary as to what words are 'offensive', and individual tastes are widely different. We listened to your messages about being treated as adults and this is the compromise that was worked out between both extremes, as opposed to the larger lists we had in the past.

Finally, just because we've pared down the list, this is not carte blanche to flood the rooms and the forums with vulgarities. Please do not abuse this change or it will not last. The site is still considered PG-13, but we've chosen to make some language exceptions.

PLEASE NOTE - due to our desire to avoid the sort of distortions we've experienced in the past, it is possible that certain variations on the words in this list may slip through. If that happens, we ask that you please let us know so we can update the list. The Hosting staff will be informed of this as well, and may bring it to your attention if one of these variations appears onscreen. NO variations of the above list are permissible - if they slip through, it just means we have to add them to the list.
