I have an idea about this. Could the window with a period after it be part of some HTML code.

I found HTML code that went like "window(dot)open" and "window(dot)size". Could the system at ATS being getting the word window with a period mixed up for HTML code?

Hmmmm, maybe there is some kind of exploit people can do typing in raw code that has a window command so the site has an auto-filter?

Either that or it is waiting for rest of the command. I guess only the web-master for ATS can answer that question.

[window] test window [/window]

Window. Test window with period /window.

Window with . after .....funny script error.

Window. Test within window w/period. /window./

window.

test quote with period
test after quotes ended with windows with period.

Seems like an allowable script response (or whatever they call it) with no purpose... HTML5 scripts ftw?

Only lower cased windows with period seems to do the funky chicken...

Maybe it has something to do with the crap on your store window?
Now there's a conspiracy!

Yeah, it has to do with scripts, more specifically regarding the integrity of the websites Ad's or pop-up functions.

for example

function showPopup(url) [
newwindow=window.open(url,'name','height=190,width=520,top=200,left=300,resizable');
if (window.focus) [newwindow.focus


OR

function showPopup*(url) [
newwindow=window*.*open(url,'name','height=*190,width=*520,top=*200,left=*300,resizable');
if ( window* . * focus) [newwindow . focus

I added some asterisks and spaces to the 2nd example show how the script should appear (minus the asterisks and spaces), as apposed to how it actually appears upon posting to a website in the 1st example.

It's not weird or odd. The website is registering what you typed as an attempted script, as it is similar in format, and which isn't allowed to be posted. therefore it's, in layman's terms, blocking it from being executed.

Bedlam
For a while you couldn't enter the word "dongle" without it inserting a space mid-word.


Woody Allen once was so traumatized on the way to the Leipzig Anxiety Festival that he was unable to speak without the aid of a sock-puppet.

You should think yourself lucky!

Window.=function()['foo');];

window.=function()['foo');];

Looks like there's a server-side script filtering certain strings out. In this case the string "window" when written in lower case. I don't really see a point in it though.


EDIT: Yep it's filtering out certain _javascript tags such as "window" and "", most likely for security reasons to prevent XSS and code injection. Quite a weird method ..

lemme try. I'm on a very recent Mac.

(w i n d o w): window

(w i n d o w . ): window.

It's the period!

Hm, seems "w i n d o w . " is considered a coarse language by Mac? Take that Bill Gates!
