I don’t like any kind of automatic moderation. You can see how it ended on Facebook and YouTube — people are notoriously getting banned because of algorithm’s mistakes. For instance, in Polish, the word “pedał” normally means “pedal”, but it’s also used as a highly offensive word for homosexuals. The result? People getting banned for posting about bicycles and cars.

I think that instead of slur filter, mods could be automatically notified that someone used a certain word. Then the mods could manually check for context and ban if one really meant it.

Other than that, I think that the balance is right and haven’t had any issue so far.
