A new feature has found its way to the Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 Pubic Test Realms. Players can now enable the option to censor inappropriate messages. This feature is going much further then the regular mature langue/profanity filter. 

  • CENSOR_SOURCE_NO_ONE
    No one
  • OPTION_TOOLTIP_CENTER_SOURCE_EXCLUDE
    Controls whose messages will be censored if found to be inappropriate
  • CENSOR_SOURCE_EXCLUDE
    Censor Messages
  • CENSOR_SOURCE_EXCLUDE_FRIENDS_AND_GUILD
    Everyone except friends and guildmates
  • CENSOR_SOURCE_EXCLUDE_FRIENDS
    Everyone except friends
  • CENSOR_SOURCE_EVERYONE
    Everyone
  • CENSORED_MESSAGE_HIDDEN
    |cffff7f3fMessage from %s is potentially inappropriate.|h|cffffff00|Hcensoredmessage:%d|h |W[Show Message]|w|h|r

With this new feature, players can choose to receive messages deemed inappropriate, or cause them to be censored with the option for players to choose if they want to see the message or not. It is possible to change the censorship to either everyone, everyone except guildments, guildmates and friends or no one. Currently, it seems that the Game will determine if a message is inappropriate or not, which then will trigger this new chat filter.
