    Can someone at Hexus please put in a less rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish obvious swear filter replacement? It makes reading posts difficult. What's wrong with with asterisks or single-word replacements?

    On topic, announcements like this are just jumping on the bandwagon. If you aren't going to add crates, just don't do it, no need for a press release.

    Rockstar the new scummiest developer (Take Two scummiest publisher) who'd have ever thought it a few year ago. They actually manage to compete with EA, Activision and Ubisoft on that front. How the great have fallen

    Or better still leave out words that trigger the swear filter. The rules are clear https://forums.hexus.net/faq.php?faq...q_hex_swearing

    I went to the effort of typing rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish, profanity isn't my style. I'm happy for other peoples swear-bombs to be moderated automatically or manually, just make it look a little neater so I don't get a headache when Bernard Manning's ghost posts a review of ASUS' customer service.

    Not even Bernard Manning’s ghost can escape the ban saw

    I know profanity isn’t your style, and in general it adds nothing to the sense of a post. I actually edited an earlier post which was what I was referring to wane I added edited for clarity.
