Recently during live chess I received a pop up that said "message: you have been warned by a moderator. You will be banned or blocked" and an "OK" button. No other explanation was offered and I am at a loss as what behavior of mine elicited this warning. Can chess.com staff please offer some clarification?
A chess.com com member suggested that this warning could have been generated by an "auto-mod" which would only serve to further confuse the matter.
did you swear? are use a racial slur?
no, there was no chat occurring other than me complimenting my opponents play
If you were auto warned, then it would have either been for the use of a word on the auto filter (swearing), or for spamming game chat. (hitting the enter button entering text over and over too fast)
I suppose the hitting enter too many times could have been the culprit. I was getting crushed and I hit the key board in frustration. Sighs. Getting censured for that seems ridiculous especially when you consider the behavior that is tolerated in the chat rooms and on the photos section of this site. Chess.com do seem to be proactive when complaints arise which is far better than other pay to play sites I have had the misfortune of dealing with. Thanks for your timely reply kohai.
I remember being shocked at a certain diatribe consistent with your birth origin. Of course, that was 20+ years ago and you may have become more sensitive on the "anteater vs. mushroom" issue. So to speak.
Yes, Mark, a very long time ago. Kinder and gentler vocabulary. Explicatives are rare. Carl Christianson would be shocked.
One time i accidentally said penisula instead of peninsula and was auto warned. Profanity filters make mistakes sometimes.
Due to such stupid inferences, one is not allowed to put summa cum laude on one's resume anymore--the spam filters will not let the email with a resume attachment with that standard phrase get to its recipient (according to monster.com circa 1997--they suggest "graduated with highest honors" in its place).
Oh, and rotfloltipimp@penisula as well as @"offended the automod". The automod has thinner skin than a plum.
"Florida? But that's America's wang!"

Seriously? Why is there a need for a profanity filter on a resume upload? It seems a little unnecessary -- if someone has included off-colour language or something otherwise offensive on their resume they deserve what they get -- nothing.
I was on a different gaming website last night, and my opponent and I were engaging in friendly conversation. At one point, he said something like, "I enjoy this kind of competition." But when the word "competition" appeared, the filter thought he was uttering filthy language, and so the word appeared: "compe***ion." This is an unacceptable use of the filter. A filter should never do something like this! If those three letters were separated by a space on both sides, I would support it. But when we can't say a word as harmless as "competition," it's outrageous.
difficult to do that if you're a porn-star applyin' for an audition, Grobe
The purpose of filtering-out false positives is admirable but tricky.
And, yes, quite so much Serioulsy?
I'm a ~15 year subscriber to monster.com's career advice, and that remains one of the most memorable articles I read. The second word in the phrase is considered profane and never considered in context.
Okay I'm guilty for trying to be funny. I said " that move doesn't make any sense, it's like wiping your @$$ before taking a $#1T. I'm "kicked", how can I get back into playing live again???
Wait it out for 30 minutes, it's temporary.
