I once posted a comment. Here is a sniplet of what I wrote:
…I would feel ashamed 100000 times more than that.
But what happened after I posted the comment? This was what it looked like:
… I would feel ashamed XXXXXX times more than that.
Do you notice the Xs? That was what my comment looked like, and that was not what I wanted to be.

Does anyone have an idea of what is going on and why my comment got substituted with all these unneeded Xs?
I am not sure if it was a bug or a censor system….

The sensor system thought it was a phone number or social security number, so it replaced it with X's.

Hmmm… now that is a problem with the censor system.

Actually, it turns out that it was the censor system triggered, because it thought that I was giving out my phone number and social security number, according to ProdigyZeta7. So it is not a bug from what I read from post #2.

Yeah, that's the phone number censor. It's not super sophisticated - but it tries hard

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.

I thought the phone number filter got removed because it was interfering with commenting SHA-1 hashes (which often have long strings of numbers in them) on the user verification project for Mod Share and the Scratch Wiki.
