No, but seriously. The first time I saw somebody point this out, I couldn’t help but smile. Stay classy, ANet.

For those who have absolutely no idea what the kitten is going on, inappropriate words are automatically changed to “kitten” when posting on the forums.

The best part is that kitten is such a cute and funny word, it works really well.

Imagine if it was the same thing but “Shoe”. It’s not as cute, and doesn’t evoke the same kind of absurd images as “Horsekitten” and “Kitten DPS”

I don’t like censoring, period.

I really, really don’t like when a chat, a forum, or a game has filters in place, yet its owners/maintainers take punitive actions against those who hit those filters even though they’re not circumventing them.

With that being said, kitten censorship is kind of fun.

The filter is a countermeasure to ensure that as few people are exposed to the filtered material as possible.

The punitive actions are to discourage you from repeating those events in the future, as you have breached their code of conduct agreement.

Tone carries through vulgarities that filters block, and you cannot write a filter with an algorithm complicated enough to block INTENT, only specific words/phrases.

I’m not sure why people have such a hard time with this. It’s just a crutch that people fall back on when they don’t like adhering to a code of conduct that they have already agreed to in order to access the censored medium.

The ironic part is due to the filter I kitten curse more.

it’s so kitten cuddley that I want to spread kitten love. If the filter was not there I may filter myself.

I love kitten

@chase.2613: If you don’t like something, don’t actively contribute to or support it by agreeing to it and abiding by it.

Mindlessly repeating the same argument against it ad infinitum in spite of it being explained to you and every other person who has had the same epiphanic realization isn’t going to help your cause either.

I like it too. It can be downright hilarious in places.

As far as censorship goes? Filters like this are in place because some people mistakenly assume that filthy language in mixed company makes them adults.

Too kitten bad.

I have no problem with optional filters.

I dislike them being forced on me though. I happen to be fully capable of hearing (or reading) terms which are filtered without freaking out.

Optional filters, enabled by default, is the way to go.

Holy kitten, this kitten is awesome! This is the best kitten idea i have seen in a long kitten time.

This would be even better if it applied to the game chat client.

Oh the hilarity that would ensue.

Please put this in-game too.

I usually turn off the profanity filter in any game… but I’d gladly turn it on again if there was an option to use the kitten filter in game..

It’s a pile of Elonian protection magic, mixed with a little monk training,

Mine too, right after I was mystified by a post that said (paraphrasing) “rangers need to stop getting all kittenish over it”.

What about puppy… Everyone loves puppies. they are just so cute and cuddly. I think puppy would of been better. Although I do find the kitten replacement comical.
