Sometimes a single "Rude or offensive" comment flag cause the comment to be instantly removed. What is causing this? This just happened to me, but I don't have the contents of the comment anymore. It included profanities, if that makes a difference.


There is a black list of certain words/phrases that will cause a comment to get insta-deleted when a rude/offensive flag is raised.

That is - if a comment contains one of the item in the black list and a rude/offensive flag is raised against it, it will get deleted immediately.

    I assume the list is a secret? – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 1 '14 at 11:51

    @ShadowWizard - not fit for sharing in polite society ;) – Oded Dec 1 '14 at 11:52
  • @Oded Could the non-profane words (if there are any) be shared? – Mooseman Dec 1 '14 at 12:19

    @Mooseman - that would just let people circumvent them. – Oded Dec 1 '14 at 12:22
  • Can we make a white list? Sometimes people just need to be told they are complete and utter ***** – musefan Dec 1 '14 at 15:57
