Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description Jeff Bonham 2005-11-12 05:34:15 UTC
The spam blacklist extension will not match URLs which contain underscores.  For  
example, if a line in a blacklist file is:  
then [] will be blocked but  
[] will be ignored.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-11-16 10:11:51 UTC
Added it to the regex.
Comment 2 Angela 2005-11-16 10:16:56 UTC
Reopening since it isn't resolved for non-Wikimedia sites using this extension.
Adding every underscored URL to a separate regex rather than allowing all wiki
admins to add them isn't a solution.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-11-16 23:12:39 UTC
Reclosing since the objection is incorrect. Update your copy of the extension 
and you'll have the updated regex.
