I posted a comment to a low effort question here: I want to grab href address which has class link

I typed too fast and it came out like

"What you tried?"

I tried to edit it to

"What have you tried?"

and got "Comments can't contain that content."

  • Basically, there was a big controversy over people commenting that, so it got banned. – michaelb958--GoFundMonica Nov 21 '13 at 22:59

    That's because comments can't contain that content. I don't understand the problem here. – Ken White Nov 21 '13 at 22:59

    I didn't know that was a banned comment, problem solved. – Connor Tumbleson Nov 21 '13 at 23:00

    It arguably could have a clearer message – Pekka Nov 21 '13 at 23:01
  • Don't use "what you tried so far" or similar (like "show your work"). Instead, describe the specific issues with the question and how the user should go about fixing these issues. – Qantas 94 Heavy Nov 22 '13 at 2:22
