    It is obvious that swearing is not encouraged as per the Wikia Terms of Use and our rules.

    However there is a grey area.

    Is swearing completely forbidden, or is it permittable to the extent that does not accuse of personal attack and impact the integrity of the wiki? The scope is unclear, and according to several popular wiki sites, they have mixed opinion on this issue. In Wikia Community Centeal, the policy tends not to intervene bad language as long as such content is not offensive nor does it generate hate and discrimimatiom.

    However this approach should be accommodated with the context of Don't Starve Wiki. Don't Starve community includes a larger proportion of young players. Are they capable of handling offensive languages? However even offensive languages may not be offensive depending on the context.

    In my humble opinion, swearing is only forbidden, if and only if,

    • impacts the integrity of wiki; or
    • personal attack or insult; or
    • use repetitively in a discussion where reasonable people would feel the negativity; or
    • communicates with a young-aged user;

    What is your opinion? I hope administrators can reach a consensus over this matter. Thank you.
