    Twink is NOT a slur AGAINST gay people. ~ Where do folks come up with this garbage?..

    "Twink is a gay slang term used to describe young men in their late teens to early twenties."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twink_(gay_slang)

    I mean, it most likely depends how you're saying it. I'm sure there are those who try to use the word in a negative way. If the word lesbian is banned, it doesn't surprise me that word is either.

    So I assume we wouldn't be able to say the Greek island of Lesbos either.

    I wish every banned word was turned into Fergus

    Ferghus*

    That would make things fun

    Every response should be "Oops, my hands slipped. *Spits out a loogie.*"

    Or, oops my my mouth slipped would make sense...

    That reminds me, there was a time when every post that contain a fruit got deleted from a thread regardless of the contents.

    Is that why there's no bananas in the game? Discrimination towards bananas?!

    Pssh banana is a weapon. You can shoot arrow with it. XD

    Perhaps even a sword.

    There's technically an edible banana in-game.

    The Urban Dictionary gets a lot of things wrong ... but I still love them .. (they get so many things right ... lol ... they can be wrong once in awhile too). ~ But seriously, as @badnewsbarrett said, it depends on how you're saying it (I can't disagree there), and because of that ... the folks at Urban Dictionary can be forgiven ... lol (but still stared down at from above). I wonder what the folks at Urban Dictionary think of .... ... oh never mind lol ... (almost forgot where I am ... lol) ... :# o:)

    I approve, but it might be considered substitution in the CoC.

    LOL I remember one time I was trying to tell a friend that I recently visited some relatives in Hong Kong, only to find out that "hong" is also censored. :'D

    Certain sites have had their names blocked due to either spam or adult content(4chan, for example, and there are some "hong" sites).

    Shylock used to be censored. an actual NPC's name....
    It's fallen out of use, but "Shylock" was for ages a slur used toward the Jewish people, in reference to the miser himself in The Merchant of Venice.

    As for "swap", it's because of three letters that may preclude it, I would wager, though that's a discussion to avoid.

    Yuri is banned.
    If I recall it wasn't, however "boys' love" was. Either way, both are common references to a set of adult-associated genres.

    Oh man so here's another good one. I'm making a Homestead for my giant and I wanted to name it Jotunheim, y'know like where the frost giants from Thor/Norse mythology live... And it told me that names "can't contain profanity." What???

    This should be Ferghus

    *this screenshot was taken years ago when hackers managed to kill every NPC in the game.
    Was a sad time for Mabi because of the constant hacker attacks to the game.

    "Swap" is censored in certain other games and forums, too.

    The justification I've heard is that it's one half of a porn term. Actually, the other half of this particular porn term is also censored in Mabi (and most places, as it's more obviously porny), but if you type the two words together with no space it's not caught by the filter, sooo... go figure.
