So apparently "God" is considered innapropriate on Miiverse.

Pretty sure that's Nintendo just avoiding the inevitable religion debate that kind of goes like this.

- Someone makes a comment about something that's a hot topic (i.e. repeal of DOMA)
- Insert someone talking about the "sancitity of marriage"
- Insert someone using research and statistics
- Insert someone else saying "children children children"
- Insert another person using research and stats;
- Insert the standard "world going to sin and end times, you will meet your maker" comment that it always fails to due to severe lack of justification of prejudice.

And it's honestly best to avoid anything relgion, because those that believe always get butt hurt in the end.


Seems the non-believers are the ones who are butt-hurt the most these days and trying to control other's speech, even when the believers are NOT proselytizing. How is suppressing a believer's simple self expression(not proselytizing) any different than suppressing a non-believers simple self expression? It's not.

Besides, I've debated plenty of non-believers in my time and never have lost my cool or even come close to it. If a non-believer debates me, it is the non-believer who gets "butt-hurt", though not always. There are non-believers who are secure enough in their convictions that don't have to resort to condescending attitudes, name calling, or anger.

People can speak of their beliefs, or lack thereof, and most people won't get bent out of shape. I'd rather Nintendo just censored THAT sort of thing. However, we really cannot get upset about anything Nintendo censors...it is their system and software. We don't really have "rights" on their turf. We play by their rules, or don't play at all. Of course censoring everyday words like "God" won't really help their cause of building a meaningful "social network".

That's inaccurate. "God" is not an everyday word for the people I know. Yes, a LOT of people use it, but I use Buddha in replace of God.

And even Buddha was banned (I tested it out in a post and it got modded).

It isn't Nintendo. Television blocks out the word God all the time. It's quite funny to hear the censored program when a character says, "---damn it!" Like out of the two words "God" and "Damn" that kids might pick up, let's make sure they don't learn that horrible G-word.


Lol? What television shows are you watching?



Because that's a sensitive phrase to many. Third Commandment and all.

I hear "God damn it" everywhere. Maybe they mean on network TV?

Cable TV, FX, Spike, TNT, Comedy Central, etc, say it all the time.

Religion should stay out from the Miiverse, so what is the problem?

This. Miiverse is a gaming network, not a theological debating society.

Seriously, watch a movie on TBS. Like Lethal Weapon or something that you know will have a lot of swears. They censor everything and I mean EVERYTHING. Not just actual swears, but "god" and "hell" and such. I am fairly certain they even once censored the word "fart". Replaced it with "fluff". Worst is you can see the characters lips moving so you can see what it was supposed to be.

And watch out if there is any sexual themes. They may take the women right out of the scene and have the guy ogling a cake or something.

MGS2 was right all along

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading. Always accessible.

Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander...

All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution.
