    This is an example of what happens

    if you write something that breaches the EP guidelines . As ridiculous as it sounds to the more mature readers . Or those with a more open mind about including the F word

    I Wish Ep Would Respond To Request To Stop Censoring

    Since when is the word ***** profane and deserving of censorship?That's pronounced spurm, rhymes with squirm. I've read a number of stories including the phrase ***** count in reference to childless couples . What century are you living in EP ? Especially in the context of...

    Just how the heck is a question about Billy

    Joel being Classic Rock or Adult Contemporary a censorship issue? Is Christine Brinkley on here and is offended that I give the piano man some exposure? Is there a rabid Billy Joel fan on EP that is offended that I personally don't think much about him except that I grew up...

    Freedom to Choose

    Censorship is a polite and nice way to say someone is going to tell you what you can say, hear, read and write.  It's control of others by someone else who determines what is allowed.  It is anti-freedom. To filter something is different, it puts the control in the...

    I Hate Censorship!

    The other day, in a story, I mentioned that my cat had urinated on himself, only I used the shorter, 4-letter word meaning the same thing. I mean, is that so bad?? I think censoring anything is bad, but censoring a word like that is just ridiculous.

    I think ep censors are stupid especially

    for adults who mark their content as adult only. Someone else may be needing exactly what you are or needing to give someone what you are seeking. Quit the stupid censorship not everyone on ep is underage.

    I realize there are younger kids here,

    Hard Question to Real to Pi...

    Hard question to real to pick. I see EP as a place where I can write down what I am feeling, going through, etc. with out being judged.  You want to trust that all members would use common sense and be an adults and not to ruin it for everyone else.

    you can disable it. in your account setting

    under content filtering, you can disable censorship of adult content and profanity. now, you can't do much about them just deleting your posts other than censoring words yourself.

    that flags the story as inappropriate for those under 18 if you're just going to take the story down as soon as I post it? What CAN I talk about?

    Amazing, Stupid and Offensive

    Normally you'd think those words would describe the words they're censoring, right? But it serves absolutely no purpose. It's just annoying. You think that people who are under 18 don't know what the words hidden under the bunches of asterisks mean? And seriously, censoring words...

    you shouldn't stop people from posting

    or view others' post if they are adult oriented. the only censorship there should be is if the user is underage

    When I'm in a bad mood and need to get my feelings out, I don't want my words covered up to the point that the meaning is lost, and I don't want to have to stop, go back and censor myself so that it can be read. All the censoring does is annoy people and force them to be more...
