    I have relatives who’ve had that operation.

    Not exactly an original concept; Sophia’s filter was burned out by a stroke on Golden Girls, and Dan Fielding claimed to have been born without one on Night Court.

    And the pseudo-anonymity provided by the internet helps some of us to bypass that filter.

    Somehow that filterectomy left Rat with a potty-mouth.

    Some of us are born without one. Or, at least it doesn’t function very well.

    Donald Trump had that, too.

    The filterectomy procedure explains a lot of people, not least internet trolls….

    I must give Rat credit for one thing.Even if what he is thinking is vile, he thinks before he speaks.That more than i can say for most of the “humanity”.

    Rat: “Yeah, what a Filterectomy does is that it removes any and all filters between the brain, mind, and mouth; so that you say EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT RIGHT THERE AND THEN ON THE SPOT! AND, YOU MEAN EVERY SINGLE WORD OF IT!! And so any hypocrisy (of any kind!) is therefore literally rendered impossible! In short: all you really have left (after such an operation) is absolute, brute honesty.”

    This may explain “The Donald”…just listen to his campaign speeches. Trump may have had this operation.

    I like the idea of losing the filter, but then becoming someone who is truly supportive of other people.

    I know a guy like that. It makes you very careful what you say around him.

    And Rat had it purposely removed, why am I not surprised? :-)

    If you get old enough, a filterectomy is unnecessary. It stops functioning on its own.
