    I always figured there was a word filter 'caused I've typed "fuck" a few times and afterwards found it changed to f*ck and "nigga" became something less offensive. I posted once and found the post went through fine but later came back to see them altered. Again, I figured it was some kind of bizarre word filter because I couldn't see why someone would be bothered to edit it. Now I figure Nocturne's been editing them.

    Bitches and hoes that can't handle the rough stuff should stay off the internet. [​IMG]

    Well, cussing in-game is a violation of its rules. Cuss at the wrong person in your messages (namely me) and you might find yourself sans nation.
    However, with that being said, I have no way to edit your posts.

    Nocturne is a woman who has this peculiar notion that everyone should used Americanised English and refrain from cursing.

    I've made posts with words like 'colour', or 'defence' in them and I've come back to find them altered. Once I even used the word 'rouge' in a french reference and she changed it to 'rogue' for some reason.

    *Nocturne steps in to correct that to "weird" and "women" -- thanks for your understanding*

    I'm a teacher trainee. At least nominally.

    There's an American in my German class, the funny thing is she doesn't speak a word German, nor does she speak a word Norwegian, so she won't be learning any German either.

    Um, you do know that disliking bad language is neither exclusive nor characteristic of women, right? Besides, were you really ignorant of the fact that Nocturne was a woman until she made that post?
    I also disagree with the Americanisation thing, since I like to use British spelling, but still.

    I have nothing against British spelling, but I prefer American spelling because in most cases it's shorter: "Color" vs "Colour". It might also just be that my spell checker is set to American English by default, but meh.

    British spelling is better, it just looks right.

    Silvara, of course all women aren't annoying bitches that mess with our minds. Just the ones we don't like.

    American is better, the Brits just add the odd vowel into words to make it look french. They when they speak, the T's and H's are all silent. Plus, half the brits I know are illiterate to some degree.

    Anyways, American is replacing English as the prefered worldwide standard, thanks to teh internets.

    Microsift is playing a part too. Everytime I try and use spell check in Word it resets itself to American English.

    Statistically speaking, on the internet it is. According to a study by Mitchell & Burnstein approximately 85% of all persons who complained about "cussing" on the internets were women. 14% were gay men. The remaining 1% lied about their gender.

    She had said it and I thought "eh" but now, this. This changes everything. Now it's like "I'm one of those independent high and mighty bra-burning women VIVA LE REVOLUTION". I can imagine her now, organising a bake sale to fund her campaign. She must be stopped.

    Yes. American women are the worst!

    We must find a way to remove her admin powers, for the Grey Council's sake.

    I already removed her Admin powers when she lost the election.

    I haven't bothered to check but maybe Maximus gave her some Mod powers.

    Also I just thought of a way she could still use Admin powers, I'd better go fix that.

    Is her nation "Apponeurotica"? Cause even though she is a blubbering bitch she is quite strong... for a woman.
