There's a filter in Township that blocks inappropriate words and phrases.

If you see * instead of a word or part of a word, it means that it completely or partly matches a word from our filter.

Please note the Co-op chat filter option in the additional game settings. It’s on by default for all players, removing offensive words from the co-op chat, co-op names, co-op descriptions, and town names. To remove the filter, tick the Turn off word filter option.
