Following question:

Question body

All I tried to do was a retag (remove inappropiate tag) and remove unnecessary content (thanks).

Though, I couldn't submit my edit. This was the error I was getting:

The expression that blocks these is pretty simple; if you poke around a bit, you'll probably find some workarounds. The author used such a workaround, which was then stripped automatically as the post was created, leaving you to encounter the block.

I've adjusted the expression, both to make it less sensitive and a little bit less easy to work around.
