Well, i can assure you, we don't like to see swearing at all here. If it gets personal and a moderator does notice it, it will be deleted. But everyone here is doing this as a volunteer and we can't be everywhere.

If you notice some severe misbehaving, send a private message to the moderators or stop by at the irc channel #wesnoth-dev on freenet.

Oh, and a warm welcome to the forum :) .

A profanity filter sounds like a good option, but people always find a way to work around those things.

The usual method of dealing with excessive profanity is to ask them politely to please stop, and if they continue-- kick them, ban them, ignore them, or (if it is very serious) report them to a developer.

To ban or kick someone (for example "FoulDude") you must be the host of the game. Enter the command mode by typing ':' (semicolon), then:

kick FoulDude -- kicks him out of the game
ban FoulDude -- kicks him out and keeps him from coming back

Or if you are not the host:

ignore FoulDude -- you won't see what he types!

Also, if someone is blatantly harrassing the other players, it might be a good idea to report them to a developer. You can do that by logging onto irc.

I don't see a bloody problem with seeing swearing in the game. It's words, if your upset by words well then get a life beyond words, the swear words only have power since you freak out over them. The d word which I shain't mention for those sensitive ears is no worse then dang, darn, doodle-kins, or any other word you say in it's place. It's all meaning the same language wise, so if your offended by it go be offended by all subsitiutes otherwise your a hypocritical person. As the definition of f*** supposedly from Monty Python says, go out and use the words, loudly and proudly, for they are versatile as any word.
May the drakes bloody kill you all.
