No 'Sexy', 'Passion', 'Temptation' For You, China!

In China, World of Warcraft and censorship aren't strangers. Things like blood and skeletons were edited for The People's Republic, and the release of expansion Wrath of the Lich King was held up due to content Chinese authorities found objectionable.

But it isn't only skeletons and blood that are being nixed. The Rise of the Lich King, released in China late last month, also bans certain words. According to website China Game 178, the game has a filter that blocks players from using the Chinese equivalents of the words "sexy", "passion" and "temptation" in chat. Is the Chinese word for "lame" OK to use?

China's WotLK Adds Word Filter, No ‘Sexy' and ‘Passion' While Playing — [chinagame.178]


    That's completely ridiculous. What exactly is their reasoning here?

      Because sexy passion leads to democracy :D

      Fun they hate it in in shape or form

    So they can't say s***, p******, or t********?
    Thats stupid.

    I don't care how much money China's making or how they're supposedly the next world superpower. If their government is stuck in the middle ages and censors what should and shouldn't be said, they'll never be part of the larger global society coming into the 21st century.

    This is ridiculous. It's far worse than all the 'outraged mothers' who campaigned to have 'death' and 'kill' censored out of the 90s Spider-Man cartoon.

      they dont need to be apart of it, they will buy it and then run you over with a tank if you object.
