    The Word "E_N_I_G_M_A" not allowed (N, I, G in succession).

    I recently tried to change my custom user title to "Your Friendly Neighborhood E.N.I.G.M.A." minus the caps and periods, but apparently it blocks the letters n, i, and g in succession. I understand why, but I was wondering if there's any way you mods can grant me a "variance" from this rule for this word, as it's appropriate for conversation and an (slightly inflated yet) accurate description of my life on Cyburbia. Verdict?

    Leaving it as is, Mr. E.N.E.M.A....

    All kidding aside, that is a dilly of a pickle and I'd be curious why this is blanked out as well. Well, actually, why anything would be blanked out. We're all adults here and have a fantastic Mod Squad to enforce anything that is really bad.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Actually, right now it reads "Your Friendly Neighborhood Ema". Hi. I'm Ema. I like long walks on the beach and being swept off my feet in romance novels. Anywho...

    Maybe you should wait, and try to post those three letters at night..

    Hmm... apparently it doesn't block the letters in the word night. Why is e_n_i_g_m_a special? Or is it me or my computer blocking it for some reason I'm unaware of (network controls, etc.)?

    Wait a sec... enigma. Did it work?

    EDIT: Yes. It must be the titles option blocking it.

    TO, I see "E***ma" in your title. Enigma, night, knight, ??

    Edit: works fine in posts, perhaps it's just a user title bug?
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    OT: looks like that occured on all y'all's lunch hour.
    TO, did you march over to the boss's desk to ask for tech support? I'd call that convenient!

    Nope. I gotta ask on the forums just like everyone else. Dan's a man of the people, and doesn't show favorites.
