Is it possible to get the forums uncensored? For a writing competition forum I don't think we need to censor f**k, sh*t etc.

Are they censored? I've never noticed. There's plenty of f**ks and sh*ts in the Micros, but when people post feedback, they tend to self-censor as a matter of discretion, as the competition is international, and what works in Glasgow isn't the same as in Utah, or what's ok in LA may be quite inappropriate in Thailand. It's more discretion than censorship. That said, putting a 'sensitive content warning'/ trigger warning on anything that does contain - well - sensitive stuff is also wise.
Yer granny might be in here - or someone's might be - is the basic thinking. As far as I've seen in the last 2 years.
