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.

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.

Were these changed announced to the community at all or testing done on this?

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.
