Very Weird Script Behavior

Recommended Posts

I really don't understand why this is happening, but I just ran into a problem with a form submission. I was able to isolate the problem down to a single variable, but I don't understand why it is happening.

 

I have a simple HTML form (see www.paladin-pc.com/test.php). When you submit the form, it takes the contents of the text field and echoes it back to the browser between two horizontal rules.

 

If you enter almost any text string, you'll see that the form responds properly. However, when I recently tried to send some text containing the word "analysis", the processing script gave me the message:

 

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /runtest.php could not be found on this server.

 

I isolated the problem down to the substring "I AM A SPAMMER". If that substring is present at all in the field, I get the "Not Acceptable" message. Anyone have any ideas what is going on? I've entered a help ticket, but I'm not sure whether this is a support issue or a design issue.

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thanks for the response!

 

No, I didn't have any word censoring going, that I knew of. If fact, my script that processes the form only had the one line that echoes back the field.

 

But, I had placed a support ticket and heard back from a tech that a security update had been placed on the server, and that seemed to be the cause of the problem. They looked into the issue and as of this morning, this seems resolved.

 

Thanks again for replying.
