Just so i'm sure:

you are telling me that describing my creature with the text "This creature has an ugly ass" is considered "strong vulgar language"?

Then my question in response is:

Would "ugly bottom" be considered an appropriate alternative?

I understand you need to screen more than a million creatures for inappropriate content.
I also understand that you need to use some kind of automatic filters for that.

I do not understand why my creature has been removed (even from my local drive!!).
I assume it is because I used the word "ass" in the description of my creature.

Now I know that Americans are very prudish and can get sued for almost nothing.
But to ban the word "ass" out of sporepedia is a little childish to say the least.

I do not know by what amount my account is comprimised,
but I seriously would like you to reconsider the removal of my creature.
I grew really attached to it, and the loss is just unbearable.
