Why is it that when I try to post a coment It gets blocked!!!!
It wasn't so bad when it started out but NOW!!! It won't even let me prove that the post isn't spam.
and who would want to spam Oasis anyway?

Well that's all I've got to say for now.

BYE

because you're cursing. you

because you're cursing. you have to put some punctuation in the middle of your naughty words like
fu.ck
cu(nt
etc.

or at least thats what works for me.

This is not the only reason

Actually, I've never been stopped because of naughty words. But, suspect that I would be stopped if I were to use them :)

However, it does appear that even the most innocent of posts will often require you to fill in the captcha. I view this as just a minor inconvenience provided it does keep spammers at bay... questionable :(

Actually... This posting required filling in the CAPTCHA question! So don't feel that you are being particularly targeted for extra scrutiny.

But I don't post "naughty"

But I don't post "naughty" words, and for some reason on some of them it won't show me the CAPTCHA


When I’m in a pit I just pick up a shovel and dig my way out.

So... What Happens?

No "naughties"... and no "captchas"... and the post is still somehow rejected?

I've never seen this. More info, please.

Well there's not much more

Well there's not much more to tell... actually there is one more thing when it blocks me like that it displays my post like a reply.
My post under the first paragraph and the red text at the top.

Yeah, I've gotten "your post

Yeah, I've gotten "your post is spam and will not be accepted" a few times. No captcha, even...

OK... I Believe You!

It just hasn't happen to me yet. I do wish, however, that it would reject the genuine spam that Oasis suffers fairly often... but Jeff's broom (although not always quick) gets rid of it manually...

That happens to me...

I don't use 'naughty words' but it still does that! Oh, and Insanity? In comments I can't post Gan'gsta... without the ', I mean. Weirdness.
It's just a stupid spam filter.
As for 'who would want to spam Oasis', plenty. I think Jeff fixed up the 'I just told my mom I'm gay' forum thread, but it used to be 87% spam. Not to mention when somebody set up repeated forum ads for Vimax... remember that, anyone?

Anyway, spam filter = evil.

Umm...

I don't know what the fuck you ass rapers are talking about...

Edit: See, I can post anything! Maybe my stuff isn't checked by the spam filter?!

Actually, there is a LOT of spam and a lot of 'sleeper cell' accounts on here, ready to post spam as soon as they're needed, etc. I'll definitely add this to the list of stuff to make sure we can fix in the next version. Actually, let me poke around and see if there's a different setting for me and the spam filter, and I can at least try to help the people getting it a lot, maybe.

OK...

There was a setting checking all comments for spam (in a way that we don't check the journal entries and forums), so I unchecked that. It could mean more comment spam, we shall see, but that should let people post comments. It shouldn't be doing this for journal entries at all, so let me know if anyone's getting it then, in which case, what I did probably won't matter...

Forgive me, but I now must test this.

Gangsta
bitch
shit
fuck
cunt
ass (Which I'm pretty sure is allowed through anyway...)

Well, that's enough. Oh, and 'awww', for some reason. Let's see if it WORKS!

Thanks, Jeff!
(See, if you see that then it worked, so I won't need to edit. If it doesn't get through, nobody sees it anyway. Win-win.)
