I just received this message:

Anybody else who knows further dictionary terms that have conflicts with the community?

    Near the beginning, we ran into a problem with some people's names. Let me see what we can do with this one...

    Thanks Jurgen.

    Can you please check if this was resolved?

    Just tried it. I don't even get an "you can't use that!" message, it just won't save the comment.

    Hahaha! Well, SCN is now about 12 years old, so I guess like a teenager they are uncomfortable when such [otherwise perfectly normal] words are mentioned by the adults.

    P.S. I remember when the word "email" got banned on SCN, which made many ABAP posts look much more suggestive than they were. :)

    I seem to remember there is a function group with a name that is a colloquialism for solid excretia in English that is commonly used as an expletive in both English and American.

    Hi Jurgen,

    This seems to be resolved:)

    On the other end of spectrum - an unfortunate typo in DECIMAL_SHIFT apparently bypasses the uber-sensitive filter. :-]

      With so much shift in one place, sh*t is bound to happen. :D

      (CC is cleaner than the blogs ^^)

      Yeah. Fortunately, a minute ago, I managed to catch my "screensh*t" typo before submitting...

      • Jul 14, 2017 at 04:32 PM

        Hm, maybe it's not a typo... It's actually a perfect term for one of those "screenshot blogs" where OP basically posts some steps and the screenshots without any explanation why are they doing those steps.
