Profanity filter should not include "queer"

The word “queer” seems to be included in the profanity filter, but it should not be: the word is widely recognised and used in a non-profane sense, just like “lesbian”, “gay”, “trans”, and other LGBTQ+ language.

(I accidentally discovered this while introducing myself as a queer woman in the “Through the Years” long tournament that just started: it is quite disconcerting to see myself being censored that way.)

Merged, thanks!

Yeah our profanity filter is a bit overzealous at times, for mostly worse I fear.

Your changes will be live in a few minutes here.
