Because It Feels So Right...

 I'm sorry but ANY group titled Maniacs for World Domination feels so right....Therefore it cannot be wrong. Can it?

Nope, I thought not...Let the Life (and adventures) of Igor forever live onward within the realms of Mania.com. And beyond those borders as well...

I'm just now seeing this Jarrod, sorry it's taking so long.

I'm trying to put up a blog announcing Igor's nearly completed return, but can't seem to do it.

 Just try and keep it as simple as possible is my motto. AND always save your words on a word.doc or Notepad or something else before you hit the "Add/Submit" button. That way, if our screwy spam filter doesn't take it, you didn't lose the time/words. 

I've typed out four paragraphs only for the spam filter to not let my post in. I re-read it and I don't see anything questionable but it still doesn't take. The issue is that we never had a published list of the banned words or codes...Therefore we can't know which string of text is causing all these issues.

 Heck, post your announcement one or two sentences at a time until you come across the offensive word/string of text in question. That's another good way to single out which word is causing the issue...

I've been typing up all of my comments and blogs in word more or less since I joined mania. :)

But you remember how long some of my comments could go, not to mention these entries.

I've got the entry still saved on my desktop, so we'll see about trying again.

 It worked!...It was a pretty big Blog post too. I'm curious, Al...How many tries was that before it was accepted? How many paragraphs were taken out?

I usually start with everything first...then take out one sentence at a time until the server accepts the comment. That way, I can narrow down the offensive string of code/html characters to one sentence.

Oddly enough, I think it was the lyrics to "Islands In The Stream" that caused the offensive bit.

It took maybe 5 or 6 tries, and I finally looked at how the lyrics were formatted differently, then just deleted it, and there it was! Hooray!
