Banned strings

It says certain words have been banned because they're commonly used in spam but to "let us know" if you want to use any of them. Who should we contact?

Hi Kevin -- I know the pain, I once wanted to use the word 'specialist' and couldn't save (note the 'cialis' substring). Note also that I circumvented the filter (see the source). Which is not exactly a strong argument against using the filter, but it is some kind of argument for sure. So until you reach James and perhaps James reaches Chris (not sure if he needs to in this respect) in order to whitelist the relevant words, this may be the way to proceed. (Hmm, should I keep this secret from "the public"? But our public is not really prone to that sort of mischief, so I don't think I'm risking much ;-)) Piotr 17:52, 7 November 2010 (EST)
How can we do in order to change filters behaviour? I tried to give examples in the CMC SIG of participants' description. I cannot even use the TEI element corresponding to gender, which TEI decided to give another name I cannot pronounced here (chut :-) ) because the filter removed all my examples. How strange! Can it be adjusted? Thanks in advance.--Thierry CHANIER 15:06, 8 April 2014 (CEST)
Dear Thierry, please see the source of this section for one way to avoid the filter. Basically, you want to disrupt the contiguity of the "offending" strings. Best, Piotr 15:17, 8 April 2014 (CEST)

More links on home page

I suggest adding links to and to the Wiki home page.

There is much more in the Wiki than I realized before finding these two pages.
