I Don't Understand Ep's Censoring

EP automatically censors certain words... which words and why is a mystery that we are trying to understand. 382 People

    Duh!?

    Please remove the censoring, it is just limiting the EP users freedom of expression. I mean, creating a website like this, one would only expect there would be a such a community.

    What a waste this site is getting to be.

    They censor just about anything new to the point I can't even post any experience. I thought that's what this place was about was being able to share our experiences What a damn joke.

    Whats' With the F*cking ********?

    I'm new to EP, and one thing that tickles me is the automatic censoring of certain words. (I've been senselessly censored in my life so I am sort of sensitive to this act). Bisexual gets stared. What the **** is up with that? ************ gets stared. Hell that's been on...

    Censoring

    I also don't like the censoring.  Sometimes some words are obvious and others it is not when all we get are stars.  ****

    Well, I Kinda Do

    EP is a place where everyone can feel welcome. It must be difficult to keep everyone happy, as some (like me) usually use bad language while others are offended by it. Anyway, I don't agree with the censorship, as I feel that EP loses a bit of vitality and a subversive element...

    Bis Exual Is Not Foul Language

    I take personal offense at some of EP's cencoring, and I'm far from the only one. I'd hate to see what will happen to this site when people get sick of it and go to other experiance/life goals sites. I like this place

    ?!

    In sharing these confessions certain words are needed in fully describing what the writer is wanting to say and the words are needed to let the reader fully understand the story which is being told.

    Some say the old EP was much better ?

    All I know is that I can't seem to get a mature ( but not vulgar ) story by EPAllie? And what is going on that someone writes once/twice and it's a nice exchange and then they disappear. Guess I have my sights set too high. Oh' well..........!

    It truly is interesting. And it's not only men but women as well. What is appropriate for one gender is inappropriate for another. It's all of our processing and our experiences as as we grow and mature, that determines our choices in life.To some it is normal or not...

    You still have 50 year old pedophiles hitting on 13 year old girls. This censoring thing isn't helping the site at all. Like, why are you censoring all of a sudden? Half of the experiences I make nowadays have to be appealed by somebody on EP and it's frustrating. I think...

    I can't type the word 'sex' or '****' in the confessions, and yet, I click to view someone's photos and am greeted by the grown man bending over, wearing nothing but a soiled diaper.  Heavily soiled diaper.  Nice.
