I asked this question on Mathematica meta. I am just copy that post here

I am trying to edit my post. However, when I trying to submit the changes. I got this warning

enter image description here

Ok, this is polite enough and also ridiculous enough. How could my post becomes a spam?

If I delete "as far as", system will warn me that "body cannot cantain 'I know the'"

The newest finding is this:

What I want to add to my post is here pastebin.com/6FSujEi5. It contains Chinese characters.

What I found is that If I delete those sentences contains Chinese characters, saving edits is Ok. But If I paste all, I got warnings when saving edits.


the true workaround is in this answer

    I don't think this is a dupe - posting chinese characters is the reason behind this, but I think there is also a point in this question that the message here is misleading. The OP may want to elaborate on what he wants to know here. – Zizouz212 May 15 '16 at 17:27
  • I did some things, removing one name from the list and transliterating it to the equivalent Japanese character, and it somehow worked. That does not, however, mean that this is fixed. I still stand behind my point I made in the link in the first comment of DavidPostill. – wythagoras May 15 '16 at 18:52
  • It’s worth noting that, 9½ months ago, jmac♦ said “At some point in the future we will re-enable Chinese.”  It may be time to revisit that issue.  BTW, is anything even monitoring how many posts get rejected by this rule — and is anybody looking at them to see how many of them are spam? – Scott May 16 '16 at 3:59
  • @Scott the false positives are very rare, and yes, the true positives are usually a lot that make the ban necessary. I don't have access to any data but I can tell easily with the amount of Chinese spam sites without the block tend to get. – M.A.R. May 16 '16 at 10:40
