[META] Censoring quoted slurs is not required. But if you prefer to censor, could you stop with the c[slur] f[slur] business, dearest SRSters? Seriously, what is that? (self.ShitRedditSays)

I have no idea how it started and I've never seen it anywhere else. Aesthetically, it looks like shit and it reads like shit. I don't know why I hate it so much but I do, and so do several other mods and regular users.
So let's review the rule: no "ironic" or "satirical" use of slurs. This goes along with the rule of thumb that if your comment is something a shitlord would say, and only differentiated by maybe some smileys and censoring of slurs, then it's probably not a quality comment, and will be subject to removal.
Outside of that, censoring slurs has always been optional. SRS is not a safe space. SRS is, in fact, a subreddit dedicated to highlighting triggering content - hence Rule 4. But, if you're more comfortable censoring, then just do it like a regular person, with hyphens or asterisks. None of this c[slur] business. TIA.
