    Language on the servers.

    Is there some particular reason the "console" will edit out [the medical term for the birth canal] but still allow people to say [that my team, metaphorically, is composed of female canines]?

    Re: Language on the servers.

    Probably because if you're using one in reference to a sexually based insult, you won't hear it on regular TV. Are you talking about "Vagina?" Or are you refering to what we call a cat? I don't think I've even heard someone use Vagina as an insult, only the more derogatory version.

    Bitch is rarely used in a sexually explicit way and is said on basic TV "six-ways-from-Sunday."

    Well, yes, I'm talking about vagina. (That's why I said the medical term.)

    Because it was designed by humans and humans are imperfect.

    Sniper, you should have read it more like:

    Why the console edits out vagina but not p**** [cat] is backassward but, like Wyz said, due to those imperfect humans.

    Well, to my knowledge the "cat" word is also censored. I'm not really preturbed by it, I just find it amusing that on someone's list of things they couldn't bear to see on-screen, "vagina" beat out "bitches" by any margin.

    Re: Language on the servers.

    I'd rather see vagina anyday. Hmmm, that didn't sound quite right...

    So...wait. The "cat" word is also censored? That's good. As for "bitches" vs. "vagina"; I'd allow them both. But that's me, I think the TG server will do different.

    Yeah, and vagina wasn't added by us. I'm sure it came stock.
