Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'': "rape" is censored with asterisks, even inside words, leading to "grapes" turning into "g****s".

* Over at the GameFAQs forums, Japanese named like "Shizuru", "Shizuka", [[Manga/OnePiece "Fukurou"]], etc. were once blocked on account of the first four letters. It got worse when the superhero movie ''Film/{{Hancock}}'' was publicized, but at least the latter was corrected.

** The GameFAQs boards for the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series makes it really hard to discuss top-tier equipment, since the regular InfinityPlusOneSword of the series is named 'Yo'''shit'''sune'.

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'' had a little scooter called the "Faggio", made "***gio" on the GameFAQs boards. Appropriate given it's an Italian feminine word for "beech" but still.

** At one point they had to rename an NPC from "Ahn Fu" to "Ahn Nao" because his last name needed to be filtered from chat.

Added DiffLines:

** At some point, obvious typos would be changed to "[NOTE: I AM TOO STUPID TO SPELL THE WORD "(word)" CORRECTLY]". Which gave rather strange results whenever someone tried to use the word "ingenious", since the entire latter part of the word was interpreted by the parser as a misspelling of "genius".

* [[{{Fark}} Fark.com]] has various filters, that it replaces in words (and even between words, not counting the spaces, so "wish it" would become "wishiat"). Shit is replaced with "Shiat", Bitch replaced with "Biatch", Fuck with the site name, Nigger replaced with "attractive and successful African-American", and Nigga replaced with "Nubian" (thus, "niggardly" becomes "nubianrdly".) It would also render this trope's title as the Scoonthorpe Problem. It's usually PlayedForLaughs: Fark doesn't have a problem with autofiltering; it [[FunWithAutocensors enjoys every minute of it]].

* For quite a while the ''EveOnline'' official forums censored the word "crack", which lead to weird discussions about how to best [[spoiler:crack]] certain ships' armor.

* The DiscoveryChannel forums once censored fart (That's right. They considered the word ''fart'' to be obscene), leading the word "farther" to become ***her.

** Due in part to the [[Main/HaveAGayOldTime euphemism treadmill]], even "negro" isn't immune to this. Some food forum autocensors, for example, will render the Spanish name of black beans as "frijol *****".

** Also, it censored the letters "halo". HAH! Hilarious, right? No. Even less funny when, a couple of years later, an update to their game would actually ''prevent ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' from working on [=XBox=] 360''.

* Don't try to say Homo Sapiens on [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Bungie.net]]. Why? Because they will be -blam!- Sapiens. Yes, the filter replaces swears with -blam!-, as it was Halo's second codename. The first one was Monkey Nuts, and was changed when Bungie founder Jason Jones (no relation to the one on ''Series/TheDailyShow'') wanted to tell his mother about the game.
