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"

"Sushi Takeout"

"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"?

Snigger I could understand, but it was Sniglet.

I only tested the public stuff. Wazers can be as abusive as they want in URs. They can call us "hotels" or "passengers" all they want and there's not a thing we can do about it! :)

So based on the UR I just found... the f word did not get censored... (I changed the letters to @), so did something get changed again?

Then I found another one
Problem: thanks for making me late a22holes!

I changed ss to 22


There's never been any censorship in URs. Only in the traffic reports posted on the client.

What a coincidence, I tried to leave a report earlier today. I entered "as soon as"... and when it posted it read something like ***oon** I thought I entered it wrong somehow :)

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.

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.


So, now if we start seeing "Waze told me to p my road to the left then make a U-turn and come back" we should suspect that the user really said "pass"? :)
