Censoring content

If you're an admin do you use word censors on your forums?

Do you like them? Are they necessary?

What words do you think should or shouldn't be censored?

I don't think it's necessary to censor bad words on their own, but it's all about context.

Like.. obviously we would never allow any racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise hurtful comments.

But it's okay to swear.

Provided the foul language is not overdone or just there for the hell of seeming like one is tough, then I probably wouldn't use it, for I believe in freedom of speech. Applying censoring of words could just make the posts look incoherent.
