Amazon won't let me have the following text to describe myself because the text entered may not contain profanity.

Moderator at CodeRanch.com


Dear Amazon,
I am deeply sorry for causing offence.
regards,

boy, i never knew they were that strict. Which is ironic considering they sell a book call Jabberf***y

Maybe the dirty word is M**erator.

if you can't describe yourself without using profanity then your problems should already exclude you from the Internet.

I agree with you. There never has been and never will be profanity on the Internet. No dirty pictures either. Actually, maybe you meant "if you can describe yourself without using profanity", which sounds more like a problem for the Internet I know.

Anyway, I can't figure out what Amazon is on about. Maybe "oderanc" is a vile insult in Icelandic, and their screening program smugly recognized your feeble attempt to disguise it? Did you try any variations, or JavaRanch.com?

I remember once going to UCLA and I had a drink ("Stout"), which was an Imperial stout, so I thought I would wash it down with some ordinary bitter, but "wash it down" was changed by the software to
waXX XX down
I tried later with what we call Freddie Uncle Charlie Katie, and that changed to XXXX too.

"Moderator at JavaRanch" is acceptable, "Moderator at Coderanch" is not.
