I argue that everything that wasn't on the swear word list my mother gave me should be uncensored. It's not the meaning that counts. It's that it's a rule. Nig*g*r and Sl*t aren't swear words, so they should be legal.

Who talks about honky tonk? Do we have this Midi Composer discussion thread where the honky tonk piano channel is a viable common discussion piece?

I think it's funnier for discussions to get disrupted by the censoring than to make an exception, imo. So I agree with para's sentiment: either all or none, for either maximum hilarity or maximum freedom.

Srsl, if someone wants to flame someone with derogatory slurs, just ban them, I think the target would be happier with that than having their little bubble protected by a word shield.

^ Pretty much everything VBB just said.

Also, there's no reason the hyphenated "honky-tonk" can't be condensed down into one word... "Honkytonk"... As a lot of people do. The "tonk" part being appended would make it exempt from the censors.

People people!

We're forgetting the true purpose of word filters; creating an in-group lexicon that we can baffle newcomers with!

Just got back from my third gig. We played Karn Evil 9, Part 2, Fool in the Rain, Trampled Under Foot, All of My Love, and a few others. Alexander's Ragtime band, Dixieland, Dixieland... Unfortunately I was unable to set up the Honky Tonky piano sound in time for the show. Fun times, just me and my bro on drums. The Korg Kronos is for real!

Wait. What were talking about?

We don't take kindly to threats here.

I'd suggest taking the next month to cool down and cultivate positive relationships because you won't be posting here.

I have no idea, I didn't even know there were different types of pianos, all this musical jibe is floating past me like distant clouds. I'm aware there's a whole world out there, but I'm oblivious to it.

I am sorry for your loss. Such things are always so sudden and unexpected, it makes it hard to comprehend them.

Me and omer made a rainbow dash HUD for doom, for our mistake most of the doomers are anti-bronies. Image

With all the low-quality random unfitting mods, you think there's things that don't fit doom?
