Included in this update is a new swearing filter, which should filter all moderately offensive words (not less offensive words of course).
This update is a more appropriate course of action then allowing many different individuals decide over such. It would have served in your best interest to note this take as early as possible. People would have been far more understanding. Would just like to admit, I appreciate such a change a great deal. For whatever thats worth.
There should be a preference about this, if you don't like swearing in your mails or whatever, fine, turn the filter on but I'm not gonna take lessons from anyone regarding what kind of language I should see and what kind I shouldn't.
Wait, so will this effect mails even between individuals who don't mind swearing?
If things have gotten that bad, what is going to be done when a parent reports this site's use of violence and guns to someone like the Brady Center?
...or the way it promotes the use of drugs to The National Drug Control Policy Center?
A language filter is an acknowledgement that due to the age of players in this game a content warning is not sufficient, and if I was a lawyer or an angry parent I'd say that could now be applied to absolutely any topic.

So it comes to, "my kid can't swear but he can look at almost naked chicks."
A swearing filter??? But yet the winner of the Mr. Torn contest looked like something found on some bondage porn website!! The moderator of the Mr. Torn submissions seen it fit for THAT pic and images of nude men to be seen on a teen-safe game! lol!!
Anyways, I am glad that there is a swear filter coming because my little sister plays this game, and I have seen a few mails that people sent her with some very strong curse words in them. Hopefully this will stop that.
i got a silly mail ban ages ago for saying a minor swear word so what is a minor or a major one and what are the ins and outs. And seriously sending 50 morphine is so tiring that its affected many peoples job choice.
Swearing filter but still not mass item send, you've made your point and bad language won't be able to be used after this update so please please ched work and a mass item send, Temporary item's and ability to send Halloween items. You've kept the easily offended happy now keep the rest of us happy please
