Does Waze censor words in reports?

Reported on: yesterday

As of this posting, the UR is here: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... -122.89634

I've not been aware that there is censoring going on. If it is, and a word like "pass" is censored because it contains "ass" then it isn't working very well.

This is ridiculous. The code handling this is terribly misconfigured.

I am thinking it is something in the sql injection prevention code. It is seeing pass as being the beginning to password and rejecting it.

Just a side note that no censor happens on map reports, or at least not on the INTL server. Maybe it only applies to public stuff?

OT: I love the lengthy ones that report they tried and couldn't screw a segment with an incorrect fix because a rank5 (me) locked the segment out. :mrgreen: too bad editors can't see who reports those, albeit in most cases I know exactly who they are.

And did it stop by now? (No means of telling, in Europe we are all adults)

"HO" is also censored, regardless of its placement in the sentence.

Android screen cap is being rejected as an upload; I will rehost shortly.

Okay...this is obviously something new but it's not only censoring anything it thinks may be inappropriate, it censors all sorts of things...

"Fender bender on Takashita Rd"

Image
"Sushi Takeout"

Image
"Sniglet of the day: Passhole - (n) - Driver who overtakes in the slow lane."

I don't know what to make of this one...Passhole is pretty obvious, but "Sniglet" and "who"?
