    re: [redacted, profanity]

    From Wiktionary:

    3 (countable, US, derogatory, slang) An Asian person who dresses, acts and speaks according to Caucasian stereotypes rather than Asian ones (from the “yellow” outside and “white” inside; compare Oreo (“Black person who acts white”)).

    That's for the Tee DoubleYou Eye Enn Kay Eye Ee (can't write out racist slang, you know...)

    Did nobody think to query what an i@v@ice is?

    (no need reading below this line) akismet thinks I'm a bot, but this long line of unnecessary text states otherwise. If I were a bot, I'd actually try and link some website where I was trying to sell something, steal data, install a virus, do all three, or ... something completely unrelated. If you have actually read this far, stop, just go to the next comment. By the way, your server is on fire. Or your router. It could be the DSLAM, but in any case, you'd better go check it just in case. How do I know, I don't, but somebody told me and now that I've made the accusation, the onus is on you to prove me wrong. But if I'm wrong, don't you feel better knowing that your equipment was not, in fact, on fire? I know I would be. So why not get up and check it out... or read the next comment, like you really should have done a long time before getting to this point.

    It still thinks I'm a bot. go figure.

    All banned-words lists. No need to be specific here.

    There are no bad words, there are only words which are either ill-defined or misunderstood.

    A popular video gaming website once had a profanity filter that also ignored spaces. So whenever anyone on the forums mentioned Yoshi followed by a word beginning with T, the post would be auto-flagged. I'm not sure if they've fixed that yet, but they certainly still have a profanity filter.

    Right, but I mean it stands to reason that since Belgium is a super-offensive word, Brussels would at least be somewhat offensive. So I think the behavior of the software is perfectly reasonable.

    If it is what I think it is (but IIRC you couldn't even post if you had a "bad" word), I was quite a bit on the Disgaea forum. The best weapon in that game is a sword called Yoshitsuna. No need to say there were quite a lot of censor-bypasses.

    On Dungeons and Dragons online the filter doesn't like the word "dummy". Unfortunately, there is an in-game object called a training dummy that you can beat up for a temporary buff. "Where are you?" "Bashing the @%#%$".

    It would definitely be a bad idea to add the NaN jackpot to your bank account.

  • PiisAWheeL (cs)

    I'm willing to bet the "reserved or prohibited" word on the email is picking up on something stupid.

    suchandsuchusername@pricingSELECT.com or some other such nonsense probably related to the database.

    As for reserved and prohibited words, I say we add some to this forum. Fr1st should be the first word on the list.

    Oh I don't know... you could withdraw as much as you like, and the balance would never change!

    In the really old Amiga game 'Bard's Tale', you had 4 characters. You could attack and kill the character in slot 3. Then with him having 0 gold, go into the shop, and buy something with the 4th (still alive) character. The game would then decide to reorder the characters, and subtract the item price from the dead (now 4th) character with zero gold, and poof, you'd have minus 2 billion gold, which was as good as +4billion, I guess. Or something like that.

    Thats why the jackpot is NAN. You actually WIN the irish girl. I'd buy a ticket.
