** Nosep'''ass''' and Probop'''ass''' are still unable to be traded without a nickname, though Cofagrigus has at least been fixed.

* ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' has a [[http://mod.gib.me/darksouls2/ngword/english.txt whole list of words that are censored]] for use in usernames during multiplayer, replacing all appearances of these words/letter sequences with asterisks. Notable due to the fact that "ead" (an acronym for "eat a dick") is censored, in a game about the und''ead''. ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' is just as bad, as one of the censored letter combinations is "[[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad nig]]", which means one can't even call themselves a k''nig''ht in a game about knights!

Even more ridiculously, they're case-sensitive, meaning typing the offending word in all caps will get it through the filter. Many have questioned just what the programmers who made this filter were thinking.

* The {{BIONICLE}} fansite {{BZPower}} has run afoul of this from time to time. For instance, the word "mod" filters to "moderator", a filter put in place early in the site's life to discourage discussion of rival fansite Mask of Destiny (commonly abbreviated as [=MoD=]). However, this poses problems in discussions of "mods" (modifications) for sets, and such discussions come up fairly frequently. Additionally, a lot of even minor insults like "jerk" would filter to #### or "idiot" to "cool dude" (Both words that actually appear in BIONICLE media) in order to discourage flaming, which made a line in an official BIONICLE short story posted to the site by BIONICLE writer Greg Farshtey seem shockingly profane. Most members simply learn to alter their vocabulary since [=BZPower=] has well-enforced rules against bypassing the word filter in any way. Most mods (moderators) recognize that some filtered words are silly or out-of-date and that the filter is in major need of an update, but they still enforce the rule against bypassing the word filter so new members don't think that putting spaces between letters is allowed for serious infractions.

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX'' has this problem with the party chat - from the start of the game, the censorship reached memetic levels with words like Orichal*** (Orichalcum, a rare crafting item), ***el (Jewel, the in-game premium currency), and s*** (skill). Thankfully, the problem is being gradually fixed with update patches.

Added DiffLines:

* A strategy MMO of TheGodfather featured a profanity filter that deleted any perceived cusswords as if they were never there, inconvenient for any mobster hoping to "inate" a rival. Unless you inserted a censored word between the letters in such a way as to make it come out right after the system censored it: "asasssaassssinate" would become "assassinate," for instance.

* [=JournalFen=], famous as the home of Fandom Wank, blocks any comment (without explanation, for added confusion) with the word "cialis"[[note]]Trademark for tadalafil, a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction[[/note]] in it, making it difficult comment about so'''cialis'''m or spe'''cialis'''ts or similar things. Before being widely known (and occasionally since), this led to some users wondering what the site admins had against socialist ideology. The Fandom Wank wiki [[http://wiki.fandomwank.com/index.php?title=Cialis&rcid=13769 gives advice]] on dealing with this.

* A Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}-related forum once censored the word "fag", reasonable enough, right? Except anytime that someone mentioned [[Creator/BillFaggerbakke Bill]] "[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Patrick Star]]" [[Creator/BillFaggerbakke Faggerbakke]], the last name became "[=f*ggerbakke=]" (without the capitalization, either!), along with the less risque Rodger "Squidward Tentacles" Bumpass.

** [=MapleSEA=] censors out the letters "cb" because its short for a rude way to call someone in Singlish. One of the jobs that you can be in [=MapleStory=] is "Angeli'''c B'''uster". There's also the ring "Angeli'''c B'''lessing", as well as its dark and white variants.
