    Playrix needs to change it's censor

    I was trying to let my co-op members know that I plan to take the task of growing strawberries and then take the task to make strawberry jam. I wrote the following sentence:

    I am going to first grow strawberries, followed by making strawberry jam.

    Does anyone see anything offensive or obscene in that sentence? It replaced the word 'followed' with asterisks. So, I wrote it again using apostrophes around followed like I just did here. Playrix again replaced it with asterisks, lol! So, I wrote it as F O L L O W E D. With a space between each letter and again, it was replaced by asterisks.

    I am laughing so I am not really trying to complain but I don't get it. Is that word a swear word in another language? I only speak English so am unsure, but I wonder what /who/how banned words are chosen.

    Follo is a Spanish swear word. means f***k

    Township is an international game with versions in all kind of languages. That's why the censor seems sometimes weird. I find it hilarious at times...lol.

    Thank you for explaining what follo means in Spanish. Yes, I figured it was probably something like that, but it made me laugh when it happened and chuckle again now.😄

    Lol! Yes, it's funny to see the words the censor thinks are verbatim, lol! I love your Oohc Oohc though -- very creative!

    I find the censor annoying maybe if co ops could put age limits etc we could do without it. It won't let you post crap but poop is ok. We started the bewards thing too

    Personally I don't mind the censor. It cracks me up at times and it's always SO funny to tell someone to stop swearing while you know he/she wasn't swearing at all...lol. Really funny at times. Gotta see the humour in it.
