I understand the reasons for automatically filtering/replacing certain words with stars, but do you think you could make an exception for the Rules post that every person has to read?

"No ****/****** outside of The Cesspool."

" usage of ****/****** images for avatars and signatures is prohibited. "

"17) No asking or talking about explicit subject like **** or ******."

There are multiple things I can think of that those things can stand for!
I don't think you want me asking "do you mean this thing?" or posting a list of every word I can think of to see which ones get censored.

I think it would improve communication.
