    It took 1 year, 9 months, and 283 posts work up the courage to ask?

    ASSEMbler has a couple of filters/banned words on the website to prevent spam. Apparently the filter didn't like something. I'd be willing to wager that it was the 666 too.

    People complain, but it works. Very little spam here.

    I generally don't approve anyone with a silly name.

    666christ
