Are you sure it wasn't the source of the picture that was removed? I've seen similar messages before from picture hosting sites and so on when a picture is removed. (Which is why I don't use them)

Maybe, but I believe I checked that at the time. However, I no longer have the link to re-check now, and no longer have the original on my computer. Still, my other, nudie shots are still up.

It has nothing to do with me or the ZFT having a problem with p0rnography - it's a way of blocking spammer's from posting web addresses that actually link somewhere. If their URLs don't work, then they'll eventually give up posting here. Notice there has been a big downturn in spam on the boards in recent weeks. Most p0rn-related websites don't spell it with a zero instead of an o - so that's why l33t versions of the word are not filtered.

It's not the only word filtered. There are a range of phärmaceutical drugs whose names I've added to our spam filter too. Some of those words had to be remved from our filter however: for example "ciälis" was in our filter and designed to remove words that had "ciälis" in them.. but this meant that it also disabled the word "socialism".. There was another erectile disfuction drug that shared a string of letters with a school of political thought, and I had to remove that filter also - though the word escapes me now.

It's not a conspiracy to stop you guys having a good time. Give me a fucking break.

You can't win for losing here. If there's too much spam you complain, but if I take steps to fix it, then I'm part of some covert cabal.

If only I had that kind of time on my hands.

And please, let's not quote FZ talking about censorship and pretend for a moment that he would be happy about the scum of the earth using his official website and message board as a platform to bother the shit out of people with solicitations for prescription drugs, low rate mørtgages, overly generous Nigerian billionaires, phishing schemes or dodgy pørn.

since I couldn't have said it better myself, I'm quoting our admin, mikey, here.

Oh, and BTW the Unmoderated nostalgia comment was about a discussion on if Doug's picture was censored, not about the porn filter issue... Tying to build your own little twisted scenario again, aren't you Grumpy?

PS. Don't get me wrong, Mikey has been doing a fine job on the specific matter of handling spam attacks, but in case his measures have already gotten the desired effect and pushed down the spam to a negligible rate, I am for excluding the word porn from the filter, or we cannot even clearly debate the Man's career and repertoire :evil:

who's ruining what? and what words? "bla bla bla"? have you ever said anything else?

you know, mr. green genes... I've noticed something. a lot of times when you and I have our little petty arguments (that nobody seems to care about, anyway), you make fun of my user name, twisting it into 'grumpy' something or other... now, personally, I don't get offended by that one bit, I laugh at it, but, you know, I do feel that it's an insult towards frank zappa... have you ever thought about that? and, please note, I always call you by your user name...

Now that was a funny story, and it clarifies why Socialism ended up on a spam filter... Many laughs Mary...
