I wrote a long post about a special ist vet I went to and then I lost the whole thing, because Dogster gave me a message that "There is a problem with your request. Certain words are unacceptable on Dogster. Please review your posting to make sure that there are no words that aren't rated 'G'."
I was on an iPad so I couldn't hit the back button to get my post back, so I lost everything I'd written.

Can someone tell me why the word special-ist (without a hyphen or space) is not allowed on Dogster? That seems pretty strange especially since veterinary specia lists are pretty common!

Several word have c i a l i s in the middle of them and they all burp...

The trick is to repost your post bit but bit and you will find the burp bit.. then just look at those few words !!

I figured out that was the word but the problem is I had to retype my whole post again because I was on an ipad and it doesn't save the text when you go back to the previous page you were on... So I had to type the whole long thing again. I had another time at least once where I just couldn't figure out what the problem was and I just ended up giving up and not writing a post at all.

It's like you can't type wrist watch like it's supposed to be typed. It has a bad word in it.
