I realize that there are probably millions of teen and preteens that read through the forum comments in search of whatever they are seeking. And as i do try and watch my language around the young, deleting the word i typed completely is uncalled for and abit hypocritical. If your going to censor the printed word, (Nazis were very good at this when they burned books in the 1930-40.) Steam may as well go all the way and develop an cvar/command thats automatically boots you or kicks you from a game for typing or speaking vulgar/prohibited speech. In their infinite wisdom it will be up to Steam to decide what is allowed. We certainly cant demand our 1st amendment rights as we are having this conversation on a Steam Server in The Steam Forum. But as a veteran and citizen of our U.S.A. i would ask Steam management to be abit more open minded, and less far rightwing bible thumping sticks in the mud in a forum that has to do with a game that is played by the very young as well as others, to reach the point of using the most horrible and brutal weapons to maim,dismember,burn,behead and mutilate representations of actual human beings.Perhaps they can post what can and cannot be used after they have this momentous meeting and set "the rules". The word "S**T" that im not allowed to type is one of the least offensive words i know. I was using it in a rather poor descriptive term of the "PINION" servers that we end up using ingame at times. For my lack of using a better suited word i do apologize.
