I only tested the public stuff. Wazers can be as abusive as they want in URs. They can call us "hotels" or "passengers" all they want and there's not a thing we can do about it! :)

So based on the UR I just found... the f word did not get censored... (I changed the letters to @), so did something get changed again?

Then I found another one

There's never been any censorship in URs. Only in the traffic reports posted on the client.

What a coincidence, I tried to leave a report earlier today. I entered "as soon as"... and when it posted it read something like ***oon** I thought I entered it wrong somehow :)

Reported on: yesterday

As of this posting, the UR is here: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... -122.89634

I've not been aware that there is censoring going on. If it is, and a word like "pass" is censored because it contains "ass" then it isn't working very well.


So, now if we start seeing "Waze told me to p my road to the left then make a U-turn and come back" we should suspect that the user really said "pass"? :)
