Auto-censored screenshot coments

Postby e-cobra » Mon May 02, 2016 9:20 pm

I was messing with HTML tags in comments section of the screen shot gallery and I tried to add a button (just for fun/to know if it would work) using standard HTML syntax, it showed up as it should.
Then I tried to add a simple javascript that prints consecutive numbers whenever someone clicks on the button; to which the website said that certain HTML tags (the <script> tag) aren't allowed, but I continued messing with the code, changing script to noscript, just to see what happens.

And guess what? First, take a look at what I posted:

Code: Select all

<button id="btn1" onclick="add()">Click me!</button> <p id="op"></p> <*html script tag*> var i=0; function add() { document.getElementById("op").innerHTML= i + 1; } <*html script tag ends* >
and the auto-censor thing 'censored' the word 'document'. :P

Code: Select all

<button id="btn1" onclick="add()">Click me!</button> <p id="op"></p> <noscript> var i=0; function add() { do*****ent.getElementById("op").innerHTML= i + 1; } </noscript>
So apparently you can't type the word 'document' in the comments section, xD.

You should understand the reason of the censoring. :P I noticed this thing with the word "document" put in a comment time ago, only one case, as far as I remember, and maybe it was with a news comment.
It's not that dramatic IMHO, but thanks for the reporting here, hopefully DjDecibel will fix it...

Yep, I know why... :lol: Now I'm getting somewhat excited to see this happen again in comments.

I don't think I've ever seen a screenshot in that gallery before with a comment section with comments censored in that particular way

After reading this topic again, my understanding seems to be that this could explain why the word "ALBUM" is also censored when you write it in your post on some forums. Because it has the word "BUM" in it and AFAIK "BUM" is another inappropriate word like "CUM" in "DOCUMENT". I know this is about the comments posted in comment sections for MM2X screenshots but forum posts are probably censored in the same way.

I wasn't talking about MM2x's forums, but other forums. In the MM2C forums for example, I once saw a topic in an off topic section of the forum where users post what they're listening to, and they sometimes use the word "album" in their posts, because albums can be to do with music. But when they make a post with that word, it gets censored into four asterisks like so (****) probably because it has the word bum in it which is a sexually explicit word like "cum" in "document" is, if that makes sense.

This is what happened to someone's post at MM2C which will explain it clearer
Snoop Dogg's new ****, Doggumentary. Currently Platinum, my car loves this song.

lmao, a l b u m is censored. :lol:
Though this thread is to do with the censoring of the word "document" but I think album in my example was probably censored the same way

It must be something that only happens on MM2C as far as I know.

I'm aware the word isn't censored here.
