I suspect 'cignore chat' is such a blunt object is staff really don't want people not engaging in SIC, even if it can be abrasive at times, so there are steep downsides to turning it off.
Allow more than one filter word at a time and/or allow ignore >alias> to apply to pubSIC too rather than only to private messages.
Anyway at this point I (personally) think it's called-for to just wait to see what the $justices think. It's possible they'll say "no" to all of it, working as designed/intended. They certainly haven't (as far as I know) offered very much sympathy before around toning down the lewds.
For the record, I don't want anyone's RP to be censored, even the lewds on SIC. I just want another option so I can tailor my own experience here. I'll try the key method Rhea next time I login to see if it works, I hadn't even thought of that, thanks
There's no plotting signaled by SIC that isn't then rippled out socially if it's interesting, if it's vital to a specific player it'll get to them quickly if it's being done well.
pubSIC often just degenerates into nonsense and memery, there's a weird meta-complacency that takes place with it, the not-quite-OOC-chat-but-ehh atmosphere. I don't blame anyone for wanting to filter it out but retain access to their encrypted keys to keep in touch with what might actually matter to them.
More sophisticated filtering options for SIC would be fantastic in general, and this would be a nice start.
