    what the? pr e ss - re l eas e banned?

    I was trying to post a link to a NASA article on their website ... it happens to have the phrase "pr e ss - r el ea se" (sans spaces) in it, which got struck out in the url, rendering it useless. What gives?

    The url in question:

    https://www.nasa.gov/pre ss-r ele ase/nasa-sets-launch-coverage-for-artemis-mega-moon-rocket-spacecraft

    The post in question:

    I ended up going to tinyurl and getting a shortened link that works. The longer url ended up getting eaten in different ways at different sites. Meh...

    Just noticed another bizarre ban:

    a/p/p/u/s

    You can't use code or link directly to this api.

    Code:
    Private Sub InitDestList()
    Dim uCDL As DestinationList
    Dim pItems As IObjectArray
    Dim pTasksArray As IObjectArray
    Dim pObjColl As EnumerableObjectCollection
    Dim lMaxSlots As Long
    SetCurrentProcessExplicit*****erModelID sAppID
    
    uCDL = New DestinationList
    uCDL.SetAppID sAppID
    uCDL.BeginList lMaxSlots, IID_IObjectArray, pItems
    
    Set pObjColl = New EnumerableObjectCollection
    
    AddJumpListTasks pObjColl
    Set pTasksArray = pObjColl
    
    uCDL.AddUserTasks pTasksArray
    uCDL.CommitList
    
    End Sub
    Does it think pp is something people substitute for the letter N, and a certain body part can't be mentioned?

    Let's see...

    I'm going to publish my mANUScript today.

    Nope that's not it. Just ***** then?

    LOL

    A quick web search shows there are various companies with that name, so it is likely that at some point one of them was spamming, so got added to our bad-words list.

    DITTO.... Generally speaking, things added to the Language Filter were added for a reason. Sure, it's possible things have changed....

    BUT, we don't have the resources to go in and make these types of very small issues. I'm not sure when vBulletin added the Super Admin position - but I'm not part of it.
