Why would an actual medical term be censored? You will love this. Another forum's auto censor would not allow Dick's in Dick's Sporting goods. Changing to Penis's Sporting Goods worked fine!Confused

Did you know that Ebay censors the feedback you leave?
 
Consider this feedback that I attempted to leave immediately following the receipt of a ballpoint pen with LEDs in it (this occurred near the turn of the century):
 
 
The pen is really neat! Fast shipping too!! I'd recommend this seller!!! AAA+++
 
Can you spot what drove the automatic software censor batshit?
 

(scroll down)











In the sentence, "The pen is really neat!", the onboard censor detected the word, "penis" and refused to allow the feedback to be posted. Ouch
 
The words, "pen" and, "is" combined to form the word, "penis" and that's what got the onboard censor's panties in a bunch! Angry
 
So, have you ever been nailed by Ebay's onboard censor, either while listing an item or leaving feedback for one? Question
