"Bad word detector"

I have recently made my FPC application and I am really excited. I go to post the link to the studio and what do I get? “Hmm…the bad word detector thinks there is a problem with your text. Please change it and remember to be respectful.” Why is this happening? I am not swearing. All I want to do is post my link. Please help!

when I receive [BAD WORD DETECTOR]
switch costume to [Outraged]
say [Really?! AGAIN?] for (a long time)

Sometimes the bad word detector detects false positives - it thinks that there is a bad word when there actually isn't. It also doesn't like some link shorteners, so if you were posting your link with a link shortener it may have detected that.

You can normally fix false positives by rearranging the text in your comment.

Another possibility is that the URL of your project could contain a set of digits commonly used by commercial spammers, and therefore blocked by the Scratch Team.

If you see this signature while scrolling, you have been visited by ʎ++ haskal. Lazy evaluation, monads, function purity, lambdas, currying, partial application, algebraic data types, pattern matching, and typeclasses will come to you, but only if you comment, “Thanks, ʎ++ haskal” on my profile.

Did you use any kind of shortened link? If so, the detector didn't allow it because those links can lead to anything (such as a virus).

Don't you hate that moment when you have no ideas for a signature?

“1800” is a number often used by commercial spammers.

Try to report this issue to the Scratch Team. They may add this to the whitelist.

The censor is pretty stupid sometimes.

Maybe th link has a hidden bad word in it, and it checks for missspellings of bad words, and thngs like them. If “cat” was a bad word, ckat, kat, catt, caot, and ccat, would also be banned
