I see what's happening. There's (presumably) a server-side filter to stop people from breaching the FUG by referring to Telecom as "tele-con" (without the hyphen, of course). It's picking it up even though it's part of another word.

Since Telecom no longer exists, is that really necessary?

So what happens if I type the word 'snark'?

What do you mean Telecom doesn't exist? I never changed my Telecom email folder to Spark.

 

Sorry, folks - these are the words that shouldn't be filtered any more: Telecom, Telecom, Telecom, Telecom.

 

Removed now.

 

EDIT: telescum, telefail, telecrap, telecon.

There used to be a lot of hate directed at Telecom, before they were split into what is now Spark and Chorus.
