Stop the BEST IRC Censorship!! sign now

We, the Undersigned, but a small sample of the massive crowd that this petition concerns would like to politely ask the administrators of the IRC Chat service for BEST members, currently running on tallinn.best.eu.org, to put an end to the censorship that this very chat service currently bestows upon us.

In the current situation, words that whoever wrote the IRC server software thinks are "bad words" are secretly scrambled into "". this includes, but is not limited to, constructive phrases such as "fuckings to the pennymaster!" or "damn, my asshole is itchy", totally disallowing any other reader to have a clue about what the sender meant to say.

Worse yet, the sender will never know part of his outcry was censored - by standards, IRC never feeds a message back to its sender. This could create some hopeless cases of confusion.

Moreover, the censorship does not solve anything. For instance, it's still really easy to be rude ("no offense but that sucks rotten cocks" passes without a scratch), to insult people (try "hey priit, you stink worse than my mother's poo!") or to be generally disturbing (the censor filter doesn't seem to have any problem with lyrics from "grease").

As such, we've come to believe that the censorship on this wonderful communication channel creates more problems than it solves. Therefore we kindly ask whoever inside ITC is currently responsible for this service to turn off that specific feature.

Oh, and while we're at it, you ITC guys should join the chat more often!!
