I may be wrong, but part of the reason for the automatic filter is to make sure ATS complies with filters used by software that restricts access to
certain websites (NetNanny type stuff) by minors. This is the same reason why discussion of drug related activity is not allowed. It is also against
the T&Cs of the site to try and circumvent automatic filtering.
At the end of the day, does it really matter if we don't see expletives? Personally I think if you need to use them to emphasise the point, you
probably don't have much of a point to begin with. And it keeps the quality of ATS content above that of other websites that do allow it.
