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

I changed ss to 22


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

Were these changed announced to the community at all or testing done on this?

OT: I love the lengthy ones that report they tried and couldn't screw a segment with an incorrect fix because a rank5 (me) locked the segment out. :mrgreen: too bad editors can't see who reports those, albeit in most cases I know exactly who they are.

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! :)

Just a side note that no censor happens on map reports, or at least not on the INTL server. Maybe it only applies to public stuff?
