Snigger I could understand, but it was Sniglet.

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"?

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

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 :)

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

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"? :)
