Why is MySpace.com filtering out the word “online”?

Original entry: http://cherryteresa.greatestjournal.com/2007/01/30/

I have noticed this the past couple of days when using MySpace.com:

In messages I’ve received from people and in messages I’ve sent, when we’ve tried to write the word “online” it comes up as dots. So, I have to space out the word o n l i n e or else it will show up as “..”

For example:

“I couldn’t go o n l i n e today because the power in my house went out.”

This would show up as

“I couldn’t go .. today because the power in my house went out.”

WHY IS IT DOING THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!?

Does myspace have a glitch or does it think that o n l i n e is a dirty word? I’ve had people write curse/cuss words to me and it didn’t have the dots.

EDIT: MySpace fixed this. I don’t know if it was a coincidence or if it’s because a lot of people I knew wrote a bunch of complaints. But it’s fixed 🙂
