W.i.n.d.o.w - (without the dots) isn't allowed to be typed here for some reason. WTF is up with that. It's got to be the dumbest most useless glitch or censor I've ever seen.

Can this not be fixed??? Seriously, if it's a glitch, it can't be that hard to fix it. It also makes ATS look really lame to not fix something like that.

If it's intentional please tell me why because I simply can't figure out why that would be.

So it can be typed in the title apparently but not in the body text???

What am I missing here??

LOL! This has been explained before and I already forgot what the reasoning was, but yeah, it's really weird. Someone will be along to explain to your satisfaction.

I don't know why they haven't fixed it, but it's due to the css code, I guess it could be exploited some how. Window works. but if you put a dot after it, then it treats it like an object meant to manipulate the browser.. idk

OH I see. That was helpful. So if you want to talk about a window, keep talking and don't end the sentence with that word. LOL They really should fix that, especially when a writer is writing a story. It sure breaks the mood. LOL

Linux is too basic to have windows.. Only doors. Doors without drivers.


But windows are bad mojo around these parts. The sight blocked them in an effort to cut down on Demon infestations. Sometimes Daemon. Kernels of truth..

HTML doesn't come to mind. As far as I remember. It must be ATS specific. I don't know php for instance but I bet many of you know something about it..

There are other issues like HTML hyper links being too long and not working, and this is not an HTML issue. That too is an ATS thing.

They have their own, at least in part, system running.

Maybe it's to stop scripts? Maybe it's just bad coding.. I don't know.. I'm not too in to this kind of thing anymore. But if they don't have their reasons they should just fix it..



Windows.
window.
windows..
window..



That little test messed with my browser.. I didn't come back to the right "window"
It's a coding thing. And it says "Snip" at the top.. It's auto editing and it's sort of running some code..
My browser won't post this post with what I wrote in it, without stalling out and I need refresh it to get back to the same WINDOW-
You'll notice in my post I tried one dot and two dots singular and plural.

Anyway.... Barracuda. tiger. awesome. Supersecretabovetopsecret. Coding. Letmein.

Did I mention php??
