View Full Version : Unable to use the word "w.a.t.c.h" in the forum

When I tried to submit a new post with just a word "w.a.t.c.h" (without the dots) as the only content, it got denied. Considering that the word is part of a commonly used Cmd command, perhaps it should be allowed.

Hi,

I would like to have more information about this - I just created a test forum thread using the word "watch", I was able to create it successfully. Could you provide more info on how exactly you were creating it - What you had in the title, what you had in the body of the thread and similar information.

Regards,
Joe

Hi Jaraj, thanks for replying. Look in my first post in this thread:



...submit a new post with just a word "w.a.t.c.h" (without the dots) as the only content, it got denied.


It says exactly what I was trying to do: I submitted a new thread with the aforementioned word as the only content of the post. It got denied.

I just tried this again. I started a new thread with a title 'W.a.t.c.h' (as before, no dots) and the body 'Me' and it was denied. I then swapped the words, so the 'bad' word was now in the content, and the title was 'Me'. I first had to wait for a minimum of 60 seconds, and then that post got denied as well.

Here is the denied message:



Post denied. New posts are limited by number of URLs it may contain and checked if it doesn't contain forbidden words.


I still can't post this word in the body of a reply.

Have you considered that your posts might not be filtered because you're a different class of a forum user?

I can try and find that- I tried a few accounts and could not reproduce this properly - Right now, I am trying to create a new user account for testing and use that to try out the same.

Will post updates shortly.

it may be the spam filter for new users is harder and the wording was suspicious. watch
