Intel engineer Jarkko Sakkinen issued a patch for the Linux kernel source code to bring it in line with the newly adopted Code of Conduct. This mainly involved replacing the naughty words in the source code comments with variations of the word "hug."
I think this is great and hilarious. What are your thoughts?

It is censorship. "F***" is censored to "hug." Kind of hyperbolic to treat it like a conspiracy, though. That said; hugs can be considered inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual advances, and requests for sexual favors. I wonder if they'll pick up on the amusing irony.

well for kids and those who aren't into cuss words then sounds good, for those who value free speech then this is considered censorship

I wish they'd have a script like this in crunchyroll forums.
For example,
F*** = hug
idiot = hugmaster
"just die" = "be hugged"
The next time someone would tell somebody"You f***ing idiot! You should just die," it would replaced with "You hugging hugmaster! You should be hugged!"

I think it’s hilarious. A little disturbing, but mostly amusing.

I am also amused, yet puzzled by your self-censorship of “Fuck” to “F***”

(Feel free to tell me you don’t give a hug.)

Some websites and games automatically censor profanity to stars, which I am accustomed to, and I know that CR is touchy with the term and others. I compromise by leaving the first letter and starring out the rest. I find that the initial letter is important for clarification purposes. I'd rather censor myself than have mods or whatnot mess with my posts.

That makes sense. And even having been a mod who sometimes "messed with" other people's posts (but not about profanity on its own--just if used in a abusive way toward others or as part of some other rule-breakage) I can understand how icky it feels to have others touch one's stuff.
