One cannot even type a person's name without these * * * * showing up. Have noticed a few posts that have been corrupted with these * * * * * as well.

Nope! No asterisks in my post.
I haven't seen this.
Although I've seen the board 'fall down' on a number of occasions when trying to view or post. (new software's great isn't it?)

I noticed it last night on my sig. My avatar is only there about half the time as well, but as long as I can post and read . . . better than nothing.

This is where supression of "bad words" goes so far that they block out three quarters of the rest of the English language. Its like political correctness...go so far and it becomes a joke.

Just checking. I noticed tsisqua's sig wasn't right. And the other day, I saw other posts also affected. Strange. What word is in your sig tsisqua that it's trying to censor?

Hi. It is all in Cherokee, and says "Tsalagi Asgay Equa", which litterally means "Cherokee Man, Great" (word for word), or as is said in English "Great Cherokee Man". It pertains to Ned Christie, the historical figure in the photo.

Is this the new automated censorship committee at work? Certain combinations of letters are zapped automatically. This could be fun. We could create whole phrases or sentences that come out all (*'s). For instance, "What the **** do you ******* care if I ******* the *******."

Winning isn't everything;
It's the only thing!

My sig had stopped working too but I had assumed it was a problem with the URL and reverted back to the old sig, which seems to work fine.

Not sure about auto-censorship: it seems to me that sometimes the asterisks appear without reason, but I might be wrong.

Glad you told us what those words mean, Tsisqua: I had been wondering for ages!!!

Salute.
