I was updating the 3rd merchant who had an incorrect amount of items listed.

I had pasted the list of 70 items and after clicking the [Post] button, the following displayed itself:

Message has high abuse count and will not be displayed.


The section on this website:

NPC URL: https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/npc.html?id=55555
NPC Name: Paskal Lobb [ Shaman and Beastlord Spells ]
NPC Type: Merchant
Goods Sold: 67

70 items in total.

Wow, previewing this message, I see in the quoted section above that this website put stars for the merchants first name. Seriously?!

Now I see why I got the "Message has high abuse count and will not be displayed." because the EQ logs I used to
display who the merchant was and his prices showed his name 70 TIMES!


You guys are idiots.


There is NO bad word in his name. Testing in another message, for his name, I can use:

Pask al Lobb
Pask Lobb
askal Lobb

but not his actual name in the game. The only reason Gidono got away with entering his 75 entries for his message is:

"Gidono" wrote:
[Sun Dec 08 14:10:24 2019] Replaceme Lobb told you, 'That'll be 3003 platinum 3 gold 1 silver for the Scroll: Aegis of Zeklor.'

https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/npc.html?id=55555#m15758359072693994


Replaceme Lobb? You never checked after the expansion came out? You guys actually thought a mob's name would be "Replaceme"?


So, did I get 70 flags attached to my for that message? Well, this message will make it 71. Whatever. The idiocy of it all is that while
that message was flagged as high abuse it still got a rating of Excellent.


P.S. The other 2 merchants I updated are listed below because I seriously doubt your admins will ever see them without being told where to look,
so here they are:

The cussword filter is picking up some other word that's apparently in another language as I've never seen that word be used as a cuss/dirty word in English. I don't know why some of these words are in the filter. That's why I had to paste the vendor list with the first name as Replaceme because even as the developer, the code isn't set up to allow me to get around it lol. However it let me use our vendor item parser in order to input the items as it doesn't use the filtering.

You didn't get flagged for anything, that's just code picking up several counts (>=5) of a word that's flagged as a cussword and it displays that abuse message instead.

I'll go through and remove words that don't need to be filtered.

I went through in code and removed a bunch of words that are safe to remove from the list. This is submitted to our code repo and hasn't been approved by Fanbyte yet. Once they approve it, I can push it live.
