I want to edit this answer of mine on Travel.SE to add a paragraph about how to purchase a certain kind of train ticket in Japan, and I am hit by the spam detector. A screenshot of the added section follows. My guess for why it is rejected is that it contains a fair amount of Chinese characters (which are also used in Japan) which I include for reference to assist communication between a non-Japanese-speaking traveler and a ticket office clerk. If this is the case, I believe this is a problem with the spam detector and not with my answer, as this is not an unreasonable thing to post on a travel-related website.

    Wow, it's striking how much this looks like common spam. :P

    My spam detector is going off right now. In fact, I might flag this question as spam.
