I thought they could at least turn off the filter entirely for a bit to prevent this runaway issue from wrecking every thread

Canceling the censors should be easy(period) Fixing the posts will require a database restore, and we can only hope the last backup is less than 24 hours old(period)

n/m, looks like they got some of it

Don't you have to add parenthesis or something around (.com) or ".com" for the spam filter to block only the .com part? Maybe that is no longer working. But my IP was also banned not too long ago and then reinstated so who the heck knows.

hey, when you hover your mouse over the edit button, the popup text now says "Edit/Delete" message. Did we have the option of deleting our messages before?
