In Diablo 3, every time someone uses an inappropriate word I see a bunch of random characters instead of what they are actually saying. I'm a fan of angry, curse-filled rants. I enjoy seeing the interesting, colorful language of people who are having a hard time in-game. Is there a way to turn off the language filter?

I keep finding it hilarious that the Dutch version of the verb "can" ("kunt") gets filtered out, it seems a little strict to me – Ivo Flipse May 22 '12 at 7:57

After you are logged into your account select Options -> Social Tab -> Uncheck the box that reads "Mature Language Filter" in the bottom right hand corner.

I think its in Options->Social near the 'allow quick join' setting. Will update the answer once I can login & check.
