Description from extension meta

Replaces common curse words with their softer equivalents

Image from store Swearing Substitution
Description from store ====== Version Change log: Fixed "Shecky" Idaho (Shelly) ====== Do you like to visit generally wholesome sites that sometimes get ruined by users who swear in their submitted content? Or perhaps you'd rather not view obscenities altogether? If that's the case, Swearing Substitution is your solution. This extension replaces common English curse words with their softer, more politically correct alternatives. (And less common curse words with the word "cloud"). Unlike other extensions available, this doesn't replace everything with the word censored, or ****. Nothing is hidden, it merely substitutes curse words using words like "freak" or "bum". Give it a try! Please leave feedback about additional words you'd like to see blocked or sites you noticed it not working on. I'll respond as quickly as I can.

  • (2017-06-02) Adam L: FINALLY!!! something that removes swear words!!!
  • (2016-04-23) Works very well. I would like to see customization in the future, and perhaps censoring of raw text in Flash animations. But even without those it is still a good program.
  • (2015-11-28) Sparkschu Itai: Almost 50% was good, 50% are useless.
  • (2015-06-18) Weston Dransfield: Very nice work!
  • (2015-01-13) Madeleine Andersen: Working pretty well so far... I wish it could have some degree of customization for replacing what with what. But it's going good!

  • (2018-02-07, v: Jason Powell: Rotary engines
    So the piston-less rotary engine is officially known as the "Wankel engine", as it was invented by a man named Felix Wankel. With this extension installed, Wikipedia pages such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_Wankel_engine get rendered as "Mazda reproductive body partel engine". You might want to add "Wankel" to the white list. Or better yet, give us an option page where we can create our own whitelists based on words or urls.
  • (2017-05-08, v: Pinnacle Media Fiji: Not working on Reddit
    the swears aren't being substituted on Reddit bro... :/
  • (2015-10-22, v: Landon: Not Supported Sites
    Some popular sites such as reddit.com and google.com do not get censored. I love this extension and hope that you continue to work on it and improve it. :)
