    Also you said they are breaking the law, that means lots of companies are and its something that should be addressed. what is stopping you?

    Class action lawsuits are not allowed in the UK. That's whats stopping me.

    you're assuming that people would agree with you, i dont see anyone doing that here.

    what gives you the right to swear in public chat?

    The same principle that gives you the right to swear in public : free speech.

    There's someone agreeing. Also, there are many other threads about this not just here but on other forums with people agreeing, so it's not an assumption. Either way, as a UK resident, it doesn't matter if someone agrees with me or not because you cannot bring class action lawsuits against companies in the UK.

    Let's stay on topic.

    This thread is regarding the profanity filter, So let's keep the thread on that particular subject.

    Cheers.

    oh well guess you'll never get your way then.
    that being said i know these posts always happen when a company introduces a swear filter and the company always wins. so trying to convince them otherwise is a losing battle.

    It needs some work that's for sure, but it is a step in the right direction. In some ways i'm glad they did this, most of the time it was just nonsensical, outlandish spam in the chat.

    I just love how DLC is considered a profanity.

    Player: when will we get DLC?

    DICE: How dare you speak like that? That's a deeply offensive term.

    they have already addressed the problem in the announcements forum.

    It's a new thing and Beta is a great place to test it out, It allows DICE to collect information on words that are being filtered, Which then means the innocent words can be whitelisted in the filter and only the truly offensive terms can be kept in.

    Good luck on refining a regex filter which is what it seems they're using... possibly in combination with some sort of fuzzy search, but from the tests i've performed thus far, it seems like regex words and phrases... all I have to say about that is LOL

    Honestly though, all this controversy vanishes into thin air with a "disable profanity filter" setting... keep the racial slurs filtered out if you'd like, but give us standard swears in our individual languages back please, you're killing the conversation and thus community in chat.

    Ok, Here is a quick mock-up I made of how I could see this being implemented client side.

    Gameplay menu.
    k9xTmks.jpg

    You will see a new option : "Chat log word filter" with an on/off toggle.. Aswell as an arrow that you click to bring you into a secondary window.

    The on/off toggle would work as you would expect, ( toggles the profanity filter on/off )

    The arrow, Would take you to a sub-menu where you can customise what words are filtered locally client side.

    0T7kkol.jpg

    You would type the words you want to be filtered in the boxes, Hit "OK" ( "OK" not visible in my mock up )

    e'voila..
    Chat will filter only the words you assign to the client-side enabled word filter.

    interesting -- something like that would be nice -- or at a more basic level a off / low / med / high filter

    Thanks, Lol! Is it in the beta now or will this be at launch?

    Can we add one of those here so I can tell people how I really feel?

    Please Tags. Pretty please. I’ll even place sugar on top.

    Alas, Just a mockup.. It's not actually ingame, I've recreated the gameplay menu and added it in on paint.net

    I could see it working out though, It'd please those who don't want to see profanity, And those who don't mind it can keep the filter off.

    "So does" is censored for me.

    I wish they at least have an option to turn it off.

    not really, you can get arrested for disturbing the peace by using abusive language in public.

    In what country? Not in America. Profanity may be low class but it's not abusive. Abuse is calling someone a name or using racial slurs.
