This is ridiculously hilarious, but I'm not actually being allowed to save or move the page to it's correct title, because the spam filter is rejecting "Love!". But only with an exclamation mark! - Chris McFeely 15:27, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

How excessively stupid. I think I shall harass someone over it. *cracks knuckles* -Derik 15:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
<Derik> Who do I ask about a Spam Filter problem that's blockign the creation of an article at its proper name?

<GreenReaper> You can add a local whitelist
<GreenReaper> I believe there should be instructions on the blocking message.
<GreenReaper> (When I say you, I mean "a sysop on that wiki")
<Derik> Hrm- I didnt' get any such instructions, I shall ask the admin. (He's the one who originally ran into the problem)
<Derik> thanks.
<GreenReaper> # NOTE: Local communities may exempt blacklisted sites through MediaWiki:Spam-whitelist.
<GreenReaper> # This will NOT work if the phrase is blocked through Special:Spamregex.

Yeeeah, I don't... I don't understand any of that. /:) - Chris McFeely 15:43, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

The whitelist seems to be for external links only. I cant' view Special:Spamregex. What does it say? Can you adjust it? -Derik 16:00, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Hrmnf, I can't access it either. Says it's accessible only to "staff" and "janitors." - Chris McFeely 17:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
You know, much as Suki made me Wikia go-between as punishment for my sins... it's rather a lot of fun being a professional gadfly. -Derik 23:46, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
