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

    If the Hume thread still worked, emoticons still worked, and links still worked, it would be hilarious as all get out@#@#
    That obviously not being the case, it is maddeningly frustrating@#@# And not nearly as awesome as time warps@#@#

    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) :eek:

    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.

    It was exactly as you guys speculated: someone mucked up the URL censor and accidentally banned periods.

    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?
