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?

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! :)

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.

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

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.
