Error Message about "Proposed Post contains "xxxxxx" which is not permitted"

HP Recommended

Half of the time when the HP Support Assistant indicates an update is available (in this case "FWUpdateEDO2_305748.exe" today) the dld appears to proceed normally but afterward I get an HP error message the dld was NOT successful, with a link to manually do the download link ((e.g.,&lc=en&cc=US&s={9A59EE... ))  and about half of that half, or about a quarter of the time, the secondary manual dld is successful.


I reviewed the proposed post and cannot find "xxxxxx" did not remember using the word "xxxxxx"; clicked on the error message, nothing; tried to look up community rules dealing with "xxxxxx" -- either did not access the correct URL or else there is nothing explicit about prohibiting use of word "******"?


Considered error regarding proposed post is not permitted to contain "******" to refer to ******-like text, i.e. repetitive word patterns, such as the globally recognized phrase, "Om Mani Padme Hum" or alternatively "om mani padme om. . . ." but I read the proposed post text outloud and did not hear or see such a repetitive pattern.


I am stumped - can someone explain what, the error message, "the proposed text contains ****** which is not permitted in the community."


Thank you. lthpuser

If you're sure the word is not obscene, it may have been added to the spam filter for a reason - a spammer may have been using the word in titles of bot-generated posts.


You can try posting it with spaces in between the letters...
