The Old Republic & Word Filters

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Forums continue to hash out issues related to threads and posts that have been deleted relating to terms that will be censored in the upcoming Star Wars MMORPG. At one point there were indications that terms related to gay and lesbian lifestyles were to be forbidden, though this policy has already been changed based on the ensuing outcry. Thanks Kotaku. There is an editorial on this topic on GameBizBlog discussing this dust-up and issues related to word filters in general.
