What is meta?
Here's how it works:

“Sorry, posts can't contain that content.” what content exactly (besides lmgtfy)

I am trying to edit this post: Stack Overflow questions turning up on

If I just press edit, then save without adding any new content (also if I add new content) I get an error message "Sorry, posts can't contain that content".

Obviously it could contain that content last time it was edited.

Anyone know what the offending content is?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Maybe it has too many external links in it? – Goran Jovic May 27 '11 at 14:05
The URLs of the scrapers maybe? Can you try a new post with just those URLs to see if we're blocking them? – Bill the Lizard May 27 '11 at 14:06
You can post the website URL, but make sure it's in a <pre> or something so there's no actual link. – Jon Seigel May 27 '11 at 16:55
This feature is rather frustrating. – chrisjlee Feb 10 '12 at 16:13

They have almost certainly banned linking to content farms. This is why you can't link to them on meta.
