Spam filter too aggressive
|Reported by:||dmcr@…||Owned by:||otaku42|
I was finally able to submit a ticket against the DiscussionPlugin yesterday (#8317) after trying to edit the text to pass the spam filter's rules. Fortunately, it told me what the rule was that had been broken, so I was able to edit the text accordingly. I am writing this ticket because a) the rule was a bit over the top, and b) because no way is provided (that I am aware of) to get around this problem. I suspect many users would just give up and not report a problem. Here I will have to mask the words to get around the spam filter (ironic that the spam filter will filter a bug against itself! :-))
In this case, the offending words were: co+lon and elim+ite, both presumably related to the GI tract. The context that those words were used in was 'co+lon-delim+ited' and 'comma-delim+ited' (notice the 'elim+ite' within 'delim+ited' - absurd!).
Since I know you need spam filtering, it would be nice if there were a documented workaround when this happens, such as the email address of someone to send the ticket to.
