YahooSpeak 1/2 – Yahoo considers this as abusive language. I’m intrigued.

YahooSpeak 2/2 – Abusive language according to Yahoo. Barnum & Bailey, beware! Update and conclusion.

I’m intrigued. :-)

I’ll make it short. I’ll try…

I read the following article on yahoo (I have an email account with yahoo, so I go there from time to time). The link to the article (interesting to read):

Legions facing layoffs turn to parties, Internet   ( update : link doesn’t work anymore ).

I feel I should write a comment, and I write down the following one:

“When people don’t work, they meet. It’s about time. Thank God, there’s no job. Jobs were a pathetic joke people played on themselves, and it wasn’t funny anymore. Or was it? Well, it means that the whole circus could start again after a while (in months or years or centuries from now), and there would be enough candidates to rebuild the Big Error, many candidates still under hypnosis, even after generations. Who was this circus guy who used to say that there’s one born every minute?…”

Then I click to send the message.

I receive immediately this message: 

“Oops! The comment you entered contained abusive language. Please re-enter and try again. POST YOUR COMMENT HELP”

It’s the second time it happens. I tried to contact Yahoo before, to ask what was “abusive” in the message. They never answered. I won’t ask them this time.

I have two questions:

1 – Did something similar happened to you before on yahoo? Or elsewhere?

2 – Am I missing something, and is there anything “abusive” contained in the message I sent?

It’s funny. I’m intrigued.

I followed up on this:

    Update by myself on this funny yahoo oopsing thing, right here in my own comment box.

    I changed the last sentence:

    “Who was this circus guy who used to say that there’s one born every minute?…”

    this way:

    “Who was this circus guy who used to say something about… every minute?…”

    Clicked to post the comment.



    Then I changed “God” to “Goodness” in the sentence: “Thank God, there’s no job.”



    Then I deleted “pathetic” from the following sentence:

    “Jobs were a pathetic joke people played on themselves, and it wasn’t funny anymore.”



    Then I changed “hypnosis” for “the spell” in the following segment: “…many candidates still under the spell, even after generations.”



    Then I found back a way to send them some feedback. No answer yet. As usual.

    Then I oopsed myself and decided to go back to something else, like poetry and physical exercise, for a while.

    Thanks for dropping by and call again.

    If you have any idea… suggestion… humoristic or serious comment.


    It’s been a pleasure. Still is.


  4. I have a guess – there’s an implicit “sucker” in your sentence “there’s one born every minute.” I wonder of the search engine read the words around it and assumes it’s there.


  5. I enjoy your comment. Incidendally, I used to say I’ve been oopsed. To oops, To be oopsed… I’ll look closely… Thank’s :-)

    I love the OOPS bit and think everyone should use it. I’d like the police to say “OOPs, you’re making methampetamine. Let’s go to the station and beat the snot out of you.

    Sorry, I don’t see anything offensive. I’m sure it’s there somewhere if you look really closely.
