Intolerable Censorship

Have you seen these words:

Text Has Banned Words?

Well, have you?

I have. Several times yesterday, before I quit trying to post.

Ironically, I had planned to put up an 800 word essay on censorship. Long-time readers know I've been planning this for awhile, and several folks have nudged me lately.

Lesson: Don't try posting something controversial the day after a major software change.

Oh, and by the way, does anyone have a list of these banned words? They don't appear in the guidelines or the FAQ.

If I was one of the heavyweight bloggers, I 'd organize a revolt. But in my little corner here, I'll just have to stew for now.

Love the graphic Rock.

I had a battle with the banned word 'bot myself this morning. Dates (years) were throwing it into a tizzy. Changed from 19xx to 'xx and the post was accepted. Stupid 'bot!

Lol, nice rant rock!
I too was given this message when I posted on the 25th. Not only a message either. I was sent to a whole new page. Grrr, I posted a vanilla test and it was easily accepted. So next I tested the so called "banned words" in my comment area. The comment bot is more forgiving. It passed all the "banned words" without batting an eyelash. (if bots have eyelashes). Go figure...
