Added DiffLines:

* The VideoGame/ParadoxInteractive forums replace "bitch" with "complain", which can have interesting results. Most other English profanity gets asterisks.

Added DiffLines:

* The forums of game developer D3 Go!, creator of Marvel Puzzle Quest and similar games, filter profanity into the word "tinykitty". They also have fun with the filters on April Fools' Day, changing the names of the game's superheroes and villains into silly phrases. For example, The Punisher became "[=LittleBunnyPunPun=]".

Like more conventional censorship, this can lead to the ScunthorpeProblem, if the autocensor is designed to look for the prohibited string within longer strings. Compare GoshDangItToHeck

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' image board Ponychan likes to ponify people's language (changing "everybody" to "everypony", etc.) as well as make some creative replacements for some of the more unsavory words. "Vagina" becomes "wahaHA!", "sex" becomes "marshmallow", "cunt" becomes "femoral artery" (a play on "female organ", perhaps?)... this amusingly led to new writer Natasha Levinger's sole credit on IMDB being changed to "My Marshmallowiest Mistake". Stereotypical Chan-speak gets put through the ringer as well: "lulz" becomes "schadenfreude", "u mad" becomes "u currently experiencing the emotion of anger", "jelly" becomes "marmalade", and "waifu" becomes "phantasmal significant other".

* Though not a forum, in the original ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'', any swearword was replaced with '[[RunningGag cabbage]].'

* The UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Users Forums replace "Piss" with "Jarate" and "Fanboy" with "Hammer Legion Member". Most other swear words are replaced with a line of pink hearts...leading some members to use "pinkhearts" or "pinkheartsing" as a swear instead

** [[{{Fark}} Fark.com]] filters "first post" to "boobies", which has become something of a MemeticMutation. Especially since it resulted in things like "Benjamin Franklin was the boobiesmaster General of the U.S." instead of "first Postmaster General."

* On the official ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' forum, profanities aren't filtered but certain bits of net-speak are, because Tom Siddell hates them. "LOL" becomes "LAUGHING ON LINE"; "OMG" becomes "gosh golly" (formerly, it was "OH MY GIRAFFES"). And "/co/" (as in the comics subforum of the Website/ImageBoard Website/FourChan) becomes "the Butt Zone".

** Also on said forums, typing "[[ImageBoards 4Chan]]" will give you a [CENSORED] tag, [[TakeThat typing "In Soviet Russia" will give you "I am not funny"]], and "Oblivion sucks" will turn into "The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is the best game in the universe".

* Certain Imageboards do this on purpose and censor words that aren't actually offensive while not censoring the offensive words. This leads to things like turning "7" into "over 9000", "femanon" into "cumdumpster" and "peanut butter" into "niggers". For a while "source" was wordfiltered to "sauce".
