    Can anyone tell me why the word d-r-u-g-s is censored on UM?

    I can say drug, cocaine, crack, marijuana, weed, ecstasy, blow, heroin, morphine, crystal meth, slipping a girl a rape drug, getting fucked up on dope, smoking some motherfuckin good shit, passing a joint (hell, I can even post a smilie of someone smoking a joint :Smokin: ), but the moment I try to post something about taking prescription d-r-u-g-s, I get censored?

    Maybe UM is just trying to say no to ***** but it's pretty stupid censorship if you ask me.

    Long time no see.

    Check the "Done" sticky thread in GMD, that pretty much explains it I guess.

    Thanks, now I at least know the reason, but I'm sure spammers will figure out soon enough you could still say drug or drugz or drug-s or d r u g s or d-r-u-g-s or any given brand name. Spammers have to ruin it for everyone.

    And yeah, it has been a while. How's it going?

    Meh... the place has been pretty dead for a while now. Most of the "Chat" goes on in other forums. A bunch of recent bannings got rid of some of the bullshit, but it's still slow around here in general.

    Because the site was beinf jumped by some spammers and that was a common term they were using, so it is temp disabled so they get bored and go away.

    Brandnames and trade marks by far are the dumbest i know why its done but its kinda sucks when your watching a video but you can't really enjoy it because theres some big blur on someones shirt or guitar.
