The only thing I have a problem with is the numbers. Doing Big Ben last night I needed to take care of a few issues before we started part 3, only I couldn't figure out how to tell the others: I just need 10 minutes.
I would think KI could find a way to allow 2 number words or even one. If kids want to get around a filter to pass phone numbers trust me they will find a way without that.
Otherwise I have no problem with the very minimal amount of censoring they do!
I agree with having the censors, eventhough I too have found myself in need of letting others know that I will be back in a few minutes. Granite, having one or two numbers would give the opportunity of phone numbers being let out but again, like Cynical said, if kids really want to, they'd get around it. I've seen it happen in the Spiral already. Using certain words are very easily to figure out. I will not post any so I don't give ideas but I know it can be done.
I think the censors should stay but at the same time it would be alot easier to tell people that the next boss has 5,000 health points without having to code it out. Lol
Censors are probably the most protective piece in the game.
