Custom profanity filter

    Honestly you'd need a lot of words to be filtered if you're trying to make a server PG or G rated. You'd be better off using a bot since filtering messages would be rather resource intensive for Discord. You'd also have more flexibility unless Discord added RegEx support.

    This is what bots are for.

    NSFW detection already exists in the form of an Explicit Content Filter and if you want to filter bad words, find a bot with such an automoderator. A discord-maintained "curse word" detector would be pointless and ignores context of different servers where such stuff would be allowed, or people would add things there for no reason.

    I mean I get what you mean like this is a different idea than custom censor but a custom censor would still achieve this all the same

    so basically what this is trying to do is take away our freedom of speech. makes sense for a chat room.

    I'd like to see a profanity filter we can turn on for our own profile... something that filters chat for me whatever server I happen to be on.

    While I definitely agree those terms are bad, I am a firm believer of if you do not agree or like the content of a server, you should leave the server.

    yeah nah, the moment you start banning words because you feel sad is the moment you admit you have not mental capacity and emotional strength to deal with these things, a ban is an admitance of defeat of one's own ability to deal with the "harmful word" in question

    plus...

    1. it's a damn slippery slope once you start banning words (china has banned winnie the pooh)
    2. a discord server can set and enforce it's own in house rules on top of discords already set rules
    3. if you know older people on discord they do actually occasionally use faggot in it's correct sense (a bundle of sticks)
    4. without implementing a bot that scans through DM's and servers (probably breaking privacy policy) probably not the nicest thing to to...

    I'd like this to extend to emotes too if possible. My friends like to add the most horrible emotes to their servers and I don't want to see them.

    servers should be able to turn on filters for that server such as a toxicity filter, any swearing filter, or only heavy swearing or offensive language a good filter reads context too, not just a list of words.

    I'm neutral for the simple fact that there are bots that do this function for you and I don't believe in censoring a persons speech, however if it is overly excessive, then yes something should happen...

    Having this feature could be used to abuse someones speech just because a certain admin or whoever may not like a certain word and it could only be them that doesn't like it.

    If I may add onto this, maybe instead of like a server implement, add it into the personal functions so that other people may see the word that you do not want to see? Like under where you change your chat language it could go there and ask if theres any words you would like to filter out? 

     

    Sorry to add onto and impede your suggestion if you see it this way! Just wanted to give my feedback and maybe add onto how it could be added in a different way.
