Question -

I have tried to use the the phrase "out the win dow" a couple of times now. The censors of ATS only give me a _ instead. Any reason why I can't use the W word? I have noticed it reading some other posts as well.

What gives?

WELL STRANGELY, IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING NOW! Please delete the thread.

This quirk has been noticed before.
The word is only really a problem when followed by a full stop.
We can see; window
We cannot see; window.

Ah ha! Thank you for your response. I knew I had a problem with it. Strange little hiccup in the matrix I guess.

Lol, and to think, I thought you were trying to pull something like you would see Cartman pulling on South Park (like the Jennifer Lopez talking hand).

I'm curious.

I have run into this problem before too and I had wondered about it. I thought it was maybe to keep people from typing Windows or something in regards to Microsoft's OS, I had thought maybe the site owners had an issue with M$ and censored that word in spite of them.


Let's see this glitch in the matrix... Window. Window; Window_ Window! Window? Window: window. window; window_ window! window? window:

edit: ok this is all messed up and doing my head in.

You CANNOT do back slases after a word either.

forward slashes such as these are fine

But backslashes delete the slashes and anything you type after it

there is a line of backslashes just below this very sentence...

Question -

I have tried to use the the phrase "out the win dow" a couple of times now. The censors of ATS only give me a _ instead. Any reason why I can't use the W word? I have noticed it reading some other posts as well.

What gives?

WELL STRANGELY, IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING NOW! Please delete the thread.


No, it's a known issue with the word window. You can't type the word followed by a period otherwise it gets changed by the software, which is really awkward if you want to type the word window.

We actually did a slightly more indepth analysis of the issue in another thread somewhere, but it's now fallen off my subscribed thread list. Of course, it's not an issue if you don't want to end a sentence with the word window.

It's due to the word window followed by a period, being a _javascript object (not css or both idk not up to date with it all). Window is an object that I guess might have the potential to be exploited. Or it would screw up how the forums read other formatting code.

window .open("http://www.w3schools.com");
