I was trying to reply to this thread, but it could not be done because of "blatant advertising". I have tried pm'ing Burra about this with the reply I wanted to post in the pm, but I cannot even pm the post because it is advertsing. Here is an image of the problem; I could not even post it in the blatant advertising forum. I have also attached a text file of the post I wanted to make. How can I reply to the thread in an acceptable manner?

I figured out part of the issue; I played around with the wording in links in my reply, and the phrase the system did not like was "Survival Training School of California" which I thought was rather surprising. I also deleted the word "product" too.

Oooh, interesting!

The programming team seem to have got up to stuff and I've completely missed it. I've asked them to fill me in and I'll pass on any apporpriate information.

I'm guessing there's a list of words that tend to appear only in posts which are advertising stuff, and that maybe 'school' is one of them.

It looks like a feature was added to solve a problem at coderanch. And that feature is causing problems here. I think the problem has been corrected. Would you mind trying it again and letting us know?

I added "Survival Training School of California" along with the producer of Soap Nuts, NaturOil, back into my reply to that thread; I did not encounter any problems this time.
 
Does this tiny ad smell okay to you?
