    Auto message said I'm cursing

    I'm trying to respond to a thread but I got an automated message that said it found a curse word in my post. Since I have no intention of cursing I re-read my desired post several times and cannot figure out what part the computer thinks is a curse word.

    Re: Auto message said I'm cursing

    I'm trying to post a copy of what you sent me. I'm wondering if the " * " makes a difference ?? I'm not seeing anything that should have prevented you from posting.

    You are doing great so far! There are 3 criteria listed in the SLAM procedure that you should meet before ending the SLAM.

    1. CC is 0.5 or lower
    2. You pass an OCLT (ie*overnight FC loss test*shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less)
    3. The water is clear

    If you don't meet all 3 criteria there is probably some algae hiding somewhere.

    Re: Auto message said I'm cursing

    Posted OK for me. That's really confusing. Maybe you had a typo you didn't catch the first time you tried to post. Can you go back to the thread and try posting it again ??

    Re: Auto message said I'm cursing

    Weird, what I sent you was a copy/paste of what I originally tried to post so I'm not sure what happened. I tried again without the * and it worked. Actually when I pasted it in the reply box the * were not visible on my screen but I deleted and retyped the space where they were and it let me post.

    Thanks for the help.

    Re: Auto message said I'm cursing

    I think it is set to catch substituting symbols for letters to prevent any creative spelling of curse words. Having an * without a space on both sides may have triggered the filter.

    aeh0603,

    I'm still slightly confused by this as from what you're saying the error shouldn't have shown up? Can you please email me the message to webmaster@troublefreepool.com so I can take a look at this? There's likely something somewhere setup wrong.

    I got that message when I suggested someone clean all the cr@p out of the filter or something. Took me a while to figure out what was the offending word.

    Ha! I don't curse - well, rarely but I get that message a lot - using words that I never dreamed would be considered curse words.
