Solstice?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Pearl Harbor, December 7th was the first December date I thought of. People of that era truly were the Greatest Generation.

It would be great if we got the error in Preview instead of only Post message.

Tracking down the miscreant word would be so much easier.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

hard to point out the offending word without triggering the nanny.

Try running your url’s through tinyurl.com, then see if the posts with the new url’s are ok with the nanny.

My aunt woulda been 100 on Dec 7th this year, also woulda been her 79th wedding anniversary. On her 22nd birthday/1st wedding anniversary, the date became infamous, but easy to remember.

Thinking maybe the nanny was upset because of a link, or symbol, or character combo, rather than a naughty word...

Fixed.

rossa was a banned word at some point or another and because wreathsacrossamerica.org has that embedded in it - it banned it.

Sorry it took some time to get to your request, nothing was broken so..... ;)

And you can blame the Phorum programmers for not giving the ability to tell you what naughty word was the problem. Nothing we can do about that and it took me trial and error to figure out what was offensive as well.

Who knows, that word could have been added in the banned list anytime in the last 14 years.
