i was going to do a discussion and provide a link but the link had a banned word in it and there fore i couldnt post the link and well that was the whole point since it was medical in nature!! so apparently even if its in a link if its a banned word your not allowed!! how annoying!!

Well you gave up pretty quick on that one. :) If you have a link that you would like to use that is too long or has words you don't want to show you can use a site like shrinkify.com You just copy your URL and paste it into the URL box and it will create a new, shorter link.

ha ha ha ha ha... I know what you mean. It happened to me a few times as well. I am sure if you think hard enough, you will still be able to get around it. I guess when they put in the filter, the server is not going to care whether the word that is banned is in a sentence or in a http link. As long as it appears, it will flag it and then disallow it.

Well that is why some people go to sites like tinyurl.com so that they can copy and paste their link there and get a compressed version of the link. I don't think that mylot distinguishes links from regular words when it comes to banned words ;) anyways that is one way around it!
