Why is the word "s-p-e-c-i-a-l-i-s-t" censored on this board?

Googled 'cialis' and got a bunch of ads for an erectile dysfunctional drug ........... I still don't see why 'specialist' is censored

Well, I'm not that dim.

 

I realize that the word 'cialis' is contained in the word 'specialist'. I guess the confusion arises as to which word we are not allowed to use. Is it 'cialis' or 'specialist'? ........... and why?

 

I've mostly seen the word 'specialist' censored when used in conjunction with the adjective 'legal'. Perhaps those two words, used together, is what triggers the censorship.

 

Just curious, as is Rocker.

It probably has something to do with key word spam triggers.  Canadian pharmacies are renowned spammers and that is one of the items they try to peddle.

I didn't mean to imply that you're dim.  I know for fact that you're not. 

 

I should have pointed out that I've seen words on other cites that are blocked because they contain unacceptable words. 

 

Like Texasrocker said, on this site, it might have something to do with spam and advertising because we get so many spammers.  Maybe Admin will chime in if she reads this thread.

No offense taken BV80, believe me; but, I might just be dimmer than I think I am. I never even thought of the spam angle; we see so little of it here.

Believe me, we get spammed every day.  All our mods are very aware of this, and spam is usually deleted and the spammer banned pretty quick.
