Request to uncensor the word F u j i T V

@CyrusS

Mentions of the legitimate Japanese TV network フジテレビ ■■■■ are still being automatically censored on this forum. This can cause confusion when people post.

The online TV streaming website ■■■■.live, that was spamming the forum has shut down (or at least is no longer operating under that name).

And so, if the staff thinks it’s appropriate, I would appreciate if the word could be uncensored now.

Was fuji tv spamming the forum? Or were users spamming the forum with posts about it? :thinking:
I’m mostly just interested.

The second one (and just one user, as far as I can remember)
I think one can still say f​uji TV (with a 0-width space in there)

Was it like, “Oh, hey! This site’s really cool.” Or like 100 posts about it?
Since they censor the words, I’d say the former, since you could probably just ban them if it was the latter? :thinking:

I’m not about that black magic stuff like 0-width spaces, how about extra wide?
(joke was trying to use a japanese space, but it didn’t work TIL)

What about auto-replacing it with フジテレビ ? That could be a fun easter egg for future generations :grin:

That service changed its name. Won’t say their name because I can’t really recommend them.

I created the original thread about the service when it was 100% free. Then months later they started charging. They saw a lot of traffic to their service was coming from these forums and they started spamming a lot here.

Funny enough, they got into copyrights infringement troubles with the actual FujiTV network, and now it’s the one channel they don’t offer :sweat_smile:

I think it’s not a bad service actually, though apparently it can’t be accessed (the app still works but no way to get into the webpage) from Japan :cry:

I realize there are ways to get around it (such as I did in the title because discourse won’t allow a censored word in a thread title), but I think it’s just really confusing for people because there are a lot of users around now that weren’t here or don’t remember the spamming. So then every time someone tries to post about the legit network, we have to rehash this conversation about why they can’t type it plain.

This sounds rather strange for this forum. I’m kinda curious about it now. probably got annoying pretty fast though -.-

The whole FujiT.V. incident happened before I was a moderator, so I’m not sure about all the specifics, but there was a bunch of spammy posting, and there were copyright infringement issues. I can ask about about taking it off the black-list.

Remember when Prince changed his name to a symbol and it was super inconvenient. We have enough of a mouthful just practicing keigo grammar. Let’s skip the long names and be friends. :handshake:

Y-y-you came?!?!
I d-d-don’t even know what to do!

Maybe we can add to the Crabigator’s Book that FujiTV is a bad word

I have never seen the blacklist actually do something, and I choose to believe this is all an elaborate ruse to get me to say something terrible and get me banned, similar to that one tumblr post where they said “if you say your password it gets censored”

I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I can type FujíTV just fine.

Hi @CyrusS, I wonder if you all have had a chance to talk about this yet?
