    Valve is testing a new chat filtering system that blots out "the most offensive language shared on Steam," and allows users to create personal lists of blocked words, or borrow lists created by others. The filtering can also be turned off altogether.

    "We believe this level of control is especially important given that language is constantly evolving and is used differently among various communities around the world," said Valve in a blog post. "So with Steam chat filtering, we've made sure you can choose to filter language as much as you want, or not at all."

    Steam Labs Experiment that you have to opt into in your Steam account settings to use, but will soon be rolled out to all Steam users "in response to user and partner requests."
