I wonder if the shoe spammer has stopped spamming my favorite news sites. Even after lots of complaints and unsubscribes they wouldn't ban that crap.
Perhaps the news forum's moderators did not think that shoe
s can be an un-word in their forum or thought it should not be banned - else their forum technology did not make the option to ban available?
Maybe we are just lucky
K-Meleon Forum has moderators from several countries - so they have possibly more than an even chance that one of them can think oblique enough and thus find a way.
I found the spam. & When I realized I cannot win against a script on an even speed competition I selected a word that was not likely to be used in a software forum normally or often
s was not an obvious candidate like other banned words such as viagr
a (& various medicines...), casin
o (& gamb
ling words) or p
orn (& other words with se
xual connotations), that are more likely candidates. But I tried it anyhow.
For each word a moderator must risk that a decent user that wants to use the word runs into trouble because he does not see the reason immediately. IMHO not all ppl take the problem as gracefully as Win7 or SoerenB (when they find out the reason).
es was a lucky bet that got few complaints so far.
We normally or often
talk about software not about news or clothing
p.s. I had a hard time to camouflage all banned words.
