The Jemsite eaby filter...

Glen...

Can we just do away with it? please
Everyone gets around it by typing whatever mutation they prefer and we all know the site that's being talked about.

Is it really necessary to block it out? If you want to block the links, maybe instead of just the one word, you can put http://[email protected] in the filter so links can't be posted.

I dunno - it just seems like it's annoying and unnecessary.

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

to be honest, we can chat about it here for a bit... ultimately i'm not really sure of the usefulness of a bunch of auction links (that in weeks totally expire) as opposed to typing

item 552292034823

it's not trying to hide or censor, the bad links are a DETERRENT that discourages posting auction links (that are unwelcome to begin with). if that makes no sense please comment.

the fact that auctions links are totally unwelcome is not really open for conversation, which is probably why JJEMMER777 locked this up ... glen

I agree wholeheartedly with Kenny. It's stupid. Please get rid of the filter!

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

I concur with Kenny. People want to talk about the bay, bad trades, problems etc, so why not allow the word? Keep links to auctions banned though!

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

from a SEO (Search Engine Optimization) stand point, the ability of listing the name will then appear in search engines, which if you do not want to promote them, then you should keep it filtered.

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

I'm with Glen - it's currently easy enough to cut and paste the item number. We would all moan if we got bombarded with auction links and spam

I agree with KD, add the hyperlink to the filter and the word **** is a four letter word we all use.

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

I agree with kennydoe. I don't understand why the word itself is blocked.

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

This is as simple as - the word being blocked blocks the links. There's no other way to block an e-bay link. And notice there are 100 ways people can say 3bay that aren't filtered, and everybody knows what you're talking about, yet, the links are filtered.

It never bothered me either way. You want to change it fine, if not that's cool too...(Yeah I realize that didn't help at all )

But if I had to choose I'd go with Glen (Gotta back up a Yankee fan)

Re: The Jemsite eaby filter...

i say unblack it too we all know where the links mean to be linked so if the people that want to use it are going to anyway why block the name it just makes it awcward to get to the link for instance:

ive seen many fake **** jem warnings yet cant actually get to the link also with the odd nice guitar thats linked it makes my life dificult and doesnt actually stop people posting about the site so why use it

thats my 2 pence worth

i just love how you can't say ****tail. because when i have a hard day at work, i like to make myself a ****tail, maybe a martini, and preferably while my wife sucks my **** . ****-a-doodle-dooooooo!!
