    Recently I got muted for an hour saying something is cancer... i didn't know that saying something is cancer is inappropriate behavior. Which is why i suggest adding "cancer" to the chat filter.
    Pros -
    People wont say cancer. People know it's not allowed
    Cons -
    Not rly anything, since it's not like you would ever need to say the word cancer unless u want to use it the way i got muted for...

    Just because cancer affects 1 in 4 people so it' insensitive to use it innapropriately

    In one way I agree with you, however, it should be obvious that speaking of this topic in public is very inappropriate.
