There must be some word that is drawing attention. Maybe just try a totally different wording & add "not really" or "please read this" to see.

Thanks, I will try that. I thought it was the word NDAIDS but I changed those and any mention of a drug but still didn't work. I will keep trying because I would really like this seen.

Thanks again!

Wristwatch is a very normal and well used English word.

I imagine perhaps a little old fashioned for some... but not me.

I am also English.. and ENGLISH English and American English are two very different languages !

Insert a space or a hyphen between "wrist" and "watch" and your problem will be resolved. way to go

There is an embedded profanity in the middle of "wrist-watch" (without the hyphen) that is triggering the warning. That ugly little bit is far from proper! confused

Drop the first four letters and the last two letters, and what remains is a crude, vulgar term for a female anatomical feature, which is also used as a despicable derogatory epithet (especially in British English, per Wikipedia).

Defining and refining unacceptable terms in a software language filter is a daunting and virtually (no pun intended) impossible task. And the resultant effect on the user's experience can be measured in varying degrees of frustration. But in my opinion, it is far better to deal with the occasional glitch - which can dish up a bit of amusement at times - than to be dragged down into the filthy stinking morass of what passes for "communication" on so many other websites.
