Shout Filter

Disabled March 8, 2011:
The shout filter was a filter that prevented people posting in more than 40% capital letters and exclamation marks (!). Any message that contained more than 40% capital letters and exclamation marks was re-posted as "[shouting]". Posting a "[shouting]" post following another "[shouting]" post acted as a repetition, even if the messages' contents were different. There was no way to turn the shout filter off, but it was disabled in clan chat.

Repetition Filter

Disabled March 8, 2011:
The repetition filter was a filter that prevented people posting the exact same text, or repetitive characters into open chat more than once. It resulted in a message coming back to you saying Repetition. You were still able to /msg a person the same text more than once.
