Why is "phpBB" censored?


(Gerhard Schlager) #1

I’ve just written the following in php BB 3 Importer:

“php BB” (without the space) always gets censored. When I put it inside

it gets even weirder: phpBB

Why does this happen?

Pretty sure it was added as a joke to try out the censoring feature (which was asked for by a customer).

… Yeah that might get annoying, guys

Because @eviltrout or some other member with admin access thought it would be fun to add phpbb to the filter list

Dope! @riking beat me to it :smile:

Awww, you fixed the raw feed too, so I can’t go secretly see what was really written :stuck_out_tongue:

Fun as it may be, I find it quite annoying in this case.
Could you please remove it from the censored word? Thanks.
