I just learned about the hard-coded word filter in Lemmy and I must say I am kinda mad I didn’t see this before else I would have NEVER setup an instance for this.

I do NOT stand for this way of filtering and especially the bullshit reasons too keep it. “To much work for DB updates”? Wow…

So it’s time to close down this platform and start looking for something else.

I hope the #Lemmy developers gonna rethink this BIG ISSUE and maybe get the right people back. If not, good luck in the future. :-)

For now, THINK FOR YOURSELF and do not let anyone else dictate it for you like the devs are trying.

You could just edit the code. No need for the melodrama.

to be honest, i like it a lot. it makes much sense because it is just not interesting for the racist redditors who would destroy the atmosphere here. I don’t need to use the words filtered there.

so it makes moderation much easier.

another perspective: denying the holocaust is illegal in germany. and i think this makes a lot of sense and is a mostly effective way of dealing with right wings.

the slur filter of lemmy is very similar to that, it achieves similar things.

Like what?

Lemmy has a couple of problems (the list of taboo words is not even the worst) but i don’t think you’ll find a better alternative.

Just curious, what is this word list, and what other issues do you see?

the hard-coded word filter

That.

Do a search of lemmy post history. We’ve spent a lot of words and energy discussing it already, much more than it warrants - it’s such a small and useless thing. I am sick of talking about it.

Editing the code would beat the federation purpose. So that’s not an option here derp.
