What I mean by "debatable" is whether the word is actually a curse word or not. We (Tore) were able to get gay uncensored, as it's a legit word and the fact that it's treated as a negative attribute is discriminatory in and of itself.

The curse filter itself, though, is here because the site gets a higher google ranking. The admins don't personally care whether we curse or not. But if the filter is here, and filtering curse words, then they get better search hits... which no amount of reasoning is going to discourage, in their minds. As to whether Google only sees the filter itself, or the results of it, I don't know.
