** The language filter isn't quite as stringent in ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'', and permits the word "hell". Even still, there are a number of words that still get censored, such as "pork", "blow" (but not "blows" or "blower"), "screw", and crack (but not "cracked"). This is also bizarre, considering that the game has largely remained [[NoExportForYou a Japanese-exclusive game]] (the [[BadExportForYou reviled SEA version by PlayAsia]] notwithstanding).

* ''VideoGame/WWEVideoGames'' has rigid but somewhat odd filtering in that one would expect someone who is an UnPerson such as Wrestling/HulkHogan or Wrestling/ChrisBenoit or political terms such as Iraq/Iraqi or UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler to be verboten, but no these can be freely downloaded and uploaded. However as well as the typical examples being censored even common or safe words to the point of ''support'' is considered rude and will be blanked out.

*If you've ever private messaged anyone in Website/FanfictionDotNet, this comes up pretty often with words that aren't even swearwords, i.e "corpse" will become "c**pse" or "frestoyed" will become "d****ed", etc.

** MarxBrothers fans have difficulty referring to Harpo's trademark funny face, called the "Gookie," because the word contains the ethnic slur "gook" within it.

* The Christian news Web site "One News Now" automatically changes "gay" to "homosexual" in wire reports. It was pretty funny when Tyson Gay ran a 9.68-second 100-meter dash to win the event in the 2008 U.S. Olympic trials -- the resulting headline was 'Homosexual Sent to Olympics'.
** [[HilariousInHindsight It gets better]] -- the censored headline was accurate. Beijing '''also''' featured the first outed homosexual to win an Olympic gold medal, Australian diver Matthew Mitcham.

* Due to the aftermath of incidents surrounding particular discussions of a sports radio host, a Michigan media forum censors the word "Huge". It makes it quite awkward to discuss h*** changes.

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' ignores spaces, as [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] discovered when he tried to set the greeting for his tournament to "Getti''n'' Ig''guy with it".

* [[https://www.proboards.com/ ProBoards]] allows an administrator to customise or turn off the automatic censor, but the default settings used to be not only absurdly overzealous in what words and phrases they censored but also downright bizarre in what they changed them to, e.g. "penis" and "dick" became "thingy" while "pussy" and even ruder synonyms became "girl thingy" (yes, really). This could result in mentions of the famous Victorian novelist "Charles Thingyens" or a reference to a feline being rendered as "girl thingycat". Similarly "my assistant" would become "I disagreeistant".



** Since [=ProBoards=] automatically censors "dick" to "thingy", one occasionally runs into mentions of "Vice President thingy Cheney" and the like on message boards. Censoring it to "Richard" instead just makes some proper names worse (such as "Charles Richardens").

** Same can be said about other verbs derived from писать (pisat', to write). It's much less of a problem though as Russian language is based on [[UsefulNotes/CyrillicAlphabet Cyrillic alphabet]], so the problem with "pishite" would only arise if someone tries to write in Latin transliteration on an English-speaking site (Russian sites don't typically filter English obscene words). Of course, there are similar issues within Russian as written in Cyrillic letters - as shown [[http://bash.im/quote/392135 here]].
