Now, like I said before, not swearing is a perfectly understandable expectation. Stardoll's target audience is pretty young, and they don't want children to be exposed to all that. It's the way that they go about it that bugs me. Words like 'dirty' are banned, when they're perfectly innocent in some situations. For example, I roleplay a lot. Pretty recently, my character was upset because her outfit was torn and dirty. Only I couldn't word it like that, because their Forbidden Language Robots see the word dirty and tell me I can't post that. They also pick up on their forbidden words if they're a part of other words and separated by a space. For example, I wouldn't be able to type 'she's exactly...' because of the word that Stardoll picks up on. The worst part about it all is that it doesn't even work. People still find a way to bypass the filters to break the rules.
So, do you think that Stardoll is too strict about their forbidden language, or should they keep doing what they're doing now?
