    Image ######## URL: a norti word?

    Just noticed an oddity in this post:

    http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...l=1#post916975

    The significant portion of the URL for Image ########## (which is those two words concatenated) gets replaced by hash symbols.

    I cannot see any profanity in that sequence of letters.

    Has the ability to link to that site been specifically disabled?

    Yes!
    Rick added it to the naughty list when a bunch of people seemed to be promoting that site in contravention to the non-commercial rules (i.e. without an advertising contract).
    It was easier than moderating posts at that time

    Actually I added it after the owner of that store, repeatedly joined AP (4 times) to promote his site and products. Every time I asked him to discuss advertising with me and he refused. So I placed the name of his store on the banned word list as I felt he didn't deserve promotion on AP, when he was not willing to pay to advertise, when other advertisers were.

    I will not be disabling the blocking of it, and after previous attempts to get him to advertise and the responses I received from him, I would be refusing any attempt by him to advertise on the site in future. Politeness is a skill he lacks!

    Thanks guys.

    I had a feeling the issue may relate to past behaviour in relation to that company. Fair enough, too.

    Heh; I've noticed since posting this thread that the name of the company has also been given some treatment. ;-)
