I have found that there are several words that my hosting server doesn’t like me posting in HTTP forms. To begin with it was bit anoying but now I’m really starting to get pee’d off with it. The words that I have found so far are:

  • .htaccess
  • Python
  • cc
  • IP
  • SYNC
  • <script>

I’ve found that I cna get around the problem by inserting a HTML comment (<!– –>) in the middle of the word but when you’re trying to post an entry and keep getting a HTTP 500 error it gets very tedious.

If anyone knows why this should be could you please let me know as my hosting company doesn’t seem to be able to find the cause.

One response so far
