Default censored word??

Hi I just wrote an updated reply. Thanks. Please scroll down

Hi
I tried to change my signature and could not because a message said I used a censored word. This has happened in the past many months to myself and someone else whom I know. I do not understand what word could possibly have been censored. Could you please advise?
I will try to paste it below. Thank you Here is what was censored:
Above all else, be Kind. To yourself and others
Maintaining is a life long daily commitment

Question

Funny: As a test, I added your two lines to my signature; they were accepted. I opened an old post and saw them there.

Then I deleted the two lines, and it refused my old, standard signature due to "Censored word" when I hit [SAVE Signature].

Then I hit [SAVE Signature] again and it accepted my old signature.

I haven't a clue.

OK, look like it's the link in the signature that's causing the problem

Tried again to change my signature. It said I had a censored word. Thus would not allow the change. Here is what I wrote that had the censored word
"The practice if kindness is one of the greatest gift we can give another person. May we all be kind and inclusive ♥

I have been maintenance for many years after losing around 100 pounds.
Whomever you are, please know you are cared about."


I tried to resolve it by omitting the words "I have" . And was allowed to successfully post the change. How can either of those words be censored?

I remember last year on a significant Jewish holiday someone tried to post on her community thread : happy (whatever the holiday was). She couodnt post. Because The holiday was censored.

I know this is your server and not you. But I run across this fairly often when I try to change my sig. just a bit of well intentioned feedback. thanks

That just happened to me. I then hit the [Source] button above the edition window. When I did, I saw stuff that I hadn't entered. When I edited that down to what I had intended, the Signature was accepted.

Good luck.
