It seems the chat filter is operating on our group channel, which is causing confusion. Please find a way for it to be selectively applied, and not just blanketed over everything.
Cheers

agreed.

also, if anyone has words they would like to be filtered or words you think shouldn't be filtered that are go ahead and PM me.

You want us, to send you, very bad words. Just so I'm clear? :)

Group admins should have the option of selecting which words are acceptable or not, within their group.
A blanket approach is seldom successful.

@CharlieFortsConscience only very bad words that I don't already know (=

@fairstar the filter's purpose is to prevent obvious cases of profanity being broadcast to everyone in the game. a group is free to do what it wants in their private chat (including their own moderation with ircbots). plus, the filtering is done client side (which is why you see everything unfiltered if you just join the irc channel). downloading a word list per-group is out of scope for this feature at this time.
