Re: Utilizing soft filters for slurs (Slur Filter 2 Electric Boogaloo)

The words are going to get filtered regardless because an admin is going to ban you for saying them. You’re not arguing if they’re going to be filtered at all as you’ve already lost that when rule 11 gets plopped in, you’re only (supposed to ig) arguing what happens AFTER you say it ingame.

The reason it’s bad is because it hard counters a lot of systems including organ decay, toxins, bloodloss, organloss, etc. at generally no cost to anyone (power and limited amounts, both are malleable).
