Inquiry concerning text chat

Post by Kamaal » Fri Oct 14, 2016 4:07 pm

So, lately I've noticed that the word 'dirty' is not allowed in the chat. Why's that so? I doubt that it can really be offensive, given the fact that other inappropriate words are filtered.
I ran out of snarky remarks, unfortunately.

I assume this is related to history with the chat lexicon and abuse of text chat in general. "Dirty" can be used in inappropriate (rather than offensive) context. I'm admittedly a tad surprised that it is filtered as well, but I believe that aforementioned reasons are behind it.

Ah I see the point there.To be frank I didn't expect people to get this far with such a word... But anyway, thanks for clearing this up Anduril!
