Any way to improve cenzorship on chat?

I mean I just found some ridiculous censorship for the words like *** (*) or *** (*) in game chat. When I use for some words in my language telling for example:
Pol: "Chcę ulepszyć przedmiot na zielono"
Eng: I want to upgrade item to green quality"

I got this:
Pol: "Chcę ulepszyć przedmiot ****elono"

That completely damages the sentence and my fellow interlocutor is confused and I need to find another explanation which sometimes isn't easy.

In general how the words like *** (*) and *** (*) can be forbidden amongst adults? Because the game is addressed for adults right?

This is just an example and there are many more such ridiculous language catches. Any possibility to improve it?

(*) the words are: the name of organization responsible for 2WW and it's leader (which are parts of historical facts we learn at school).

    Ok, but I still wish to censor those really obscene and vulgar words, just not the ones that are and should be freely available in public community and which are simply censored in one language but are used in another as a connection of two different harmless words :).

    Yep, the censoring system is really dumb. It censors even words in English without obscene or otherwise offensive connotation because they have a part of them another word which might have one. They should only disallow such words if they are a separate particle, not part of other words. If I want to curse or otherwise insult someone I can do it in much subtle ways. And in any case profanity in English is really dull compared to other languages :)

    Yeah, I've had completely innocent words and phrases like 'forming group' and 'grapes' be censored. Thank you, Zenimax, for teaching me how people have apparently gotten past the censorship before. :|

    Cannot agree more :). This dumb cenzorship in general is like tilting at windmills. It prevents from using harmless words but doesn't prevent those really obscene. Simple example: Kuta - it's English plural form makes in Polish really vulgar meaning, which isn't covered by stars in game.
    But there are more - even simple npc name Minette, harmless in English, immediately brings an obvious connotation with mineta for my natives :).

    Improve censorship- is that like jumbo shrimp?
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.
    Call me toxic,your the one being slowly poisoned by greed.
