NSFW: The Man Don't Give A Phuq: Pure Filth

I noticed this up on Friday over at Qt3 on Friday. And it's my favourite profanity-based coding thing since that list of porn-sites got onto B-17 all those years back. Basically, going through ATV-racer Pure's file structure, gamers have found an entire folder full with extensive lists of swearing. In several languages. What's up? Well, it appears to be the word-filters for the game (A Qt3 poster claims it's Pure-publisher Disney's standard one). I suspect for an age-rating-3-and-over game, this wasn't exactly planned.

It's quite the list. And here's some of our favourites. NSFW, clearly.

This is primarily just cracking down on extravagant adjective abuse and bad spelling.

I just find lists like this intrinsically funny.

slattern

Just in case your gran gets online and starts trash-talking strangers.

copulated

And to cut off the mouthy biologists.

And the mouthy fundamentalist Christians.

dildoe

And the general illiterate. Though that's kinda understandable.

domination

What... I'm not allowed to win repeatedly against a lesser player? I don't understand.

hairpies

With my terrible comprehension, whilst scanning the list I thought this read "Harpies". Poor Greek Mythic creatures, thought I.

nymph

Actually, maybe it is cracking down against mythology.

pen15

John's proudest moment is when he made someone join the PEN 15 club over the internet. As it should be.

I like that the English list finds time to crack down on German swearing.

Loads more, obvious, including some we had to look up because American swearing is strange and underdeveloped compared to the mother tongue. Generally speaking, you suspect the list was pushed up to full size by someone clicking through Urban Dictionary and selecting words at random.

Of course, we can't understand the foreign ones, so RPS' overseas contingent should feel free to point out their own. Er... with some asterisks, because they'll turn up in the comments thread to the right and we don't want RPS to become Gaming's hotbed for non-English-profanity.
