Automatic word filters and Open August thread

Nextbigfuture has added in a list of banned words. All swear words and vulgar words. So none of the four letter words.

Also, some insult words have been banned to keep the liberal and conservative discussion more civilized.

This is the open August thread for discussing topics that you want to discuss or share links of interest.

Let us keep the discussion polite and fact based. Thanks
