Default Profanity Confusion

So, I am a member of <if it doesn't show up, I typed great lakes xj- but all in one word) and was going to post a link to their site for a technical issue a fellow member had here (to help him out) and it didn't work.

I tried a few more times, thinking it might be some coding issue, and finally I just typed <again, same as above)

...and in the resulting many timed edited post, "" was not there. Not censored, but *poof* gone.

I can understand advertising and promoting anything beyond a reasonable extent (spamming fellow members, mentioning the site in every single post, etc) but I do not see any need to censor out .

I don't get it.

It is probably because the owner of that site has in the past spammed this site with links to his site. I believe he also stole pictures and product descriptions from a GL4x4 vendor for use on his own site.

The owner there is a stealing, spamming, idiot who suffers from debauchery in the 5th degree.

So in order to stop him from profiting off taking JCR product tags, and the such, he is and always will be blocked from advertising his (direct ripoff of this) site here.
