Description Tom Edwards 2006-08-12 19:49:14 UTC
While submitting an article edit just now, I was suprised to be warned that the
page I was submitted contained a blacklisted URL. After reading the whole page
(please make the term that was found more prominent!) I discovered that it had
in fact blocked <code>overflow:auto;height</code>, part of an attempt to tame a
1280x1024-screen-filling References section.

Obviously, this should not have triggered a spam alert. It could do with removal
from the blacklist. This isn't critical as I was able to move the
<code>height</code> declaration in front of <code>overflow</code> and submit as
normal, but it's still worth sorting out IMO.

This occured under MediaWiki 1.8alpha (r16005), if that is actually relevant. ;-)

This is a configuration setting. You can set it as you like. Many spammers use
this phrase, therefore it is recommended to use this setting and find other ways
to do that.

If I can switch the words around, surely the spammers can too...but then it's
not my call.
