Filter-evading solely for the intent of cursing out another user isn't allowed. However, there are certain circumstances where censor evading is okay outside of Quick Threads.

For example:
"To tell the sex of any scorpion, examine its pectines."

My usage of a normally censored word differs from the usage that got it filtered. If you're using that word to refer to gender, it's allowed. However...

Filter-evading a post like this isn't allowed:
"The household maid witnessed Fereydoon and Lucille having you know."

See the difference?

Most censored words, however, don't have a clean usage, so outside of Quick Threads, censor-evading is strongly discouraged.

Censor-evading in Quick Threads IS allowed, so long as it isn't to flame other users. In other boards, it is okay if it is reasonable. Use common sense in this scenario. Basically, posting a big string of profanity is not allowed, but if you feel the need to un-censor one word to get a point across, or if you are putting a quote in your sig with relatively mild profanity, that is okay.

Censors that correct common misusage of the word "your" have been recently added. DO NOT evade these unless you are making a sentence structured like this: "Your funny dog is adorable."

Rules updated. Filter evading to flame another user is now a warnable offense, regardless of the board!
