I'd just like to draw attention to the fact that Wikia now censors everything that it feels is a "bad word". For example, here is the F word: fuck Even h-e-l-l is censored: hell. This becomes a problem with an article such as H-e-l-l rat and images associated with it. I don't have any proposals, I'm just opening this up for discussion, as many articles are afftected by this censoring. Joel amos Talk Contribs 22:35, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hairr just said it! Oh no! — Jr Mime (talk) 22:42, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
This. It may be that 'fuck' and 'hell' are just sent to the counter-vandalism channel or the users are warned that they're adding a bad word via Special:Abusefilter. In either case, what?  a proofreader ▸  22:43, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Are you being serious? Ronan Talk 22:42, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

No idea what he's talking about... but he's not, I checked his logs. MolMan 22:45, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry bout that. @#!* appears when I view a "bad word" on any wikia wiki. I'm currently using a different computer and now feel retarded.--Joel amos Talk Contribs 22:50, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
