I had a citation co-authored by somebody named

Chryssomalakos

But one cannot add this citation to the nLab, because the string

  Chryssomalakos


triggers the spam filter.

I suppose that’s because “soma” is indexed by the spam filter. (Maybe we had all that discussion before? A vague recollection is floating through my subconciousness now, but I am not sure.)

Last time I had a citation for the German maths journal “Hamburger Beiträge zur Mathematik” which was filtered because of “Hamburger” Now I see that “Hamburger” does not trigger the spam filter anymore, even if not succeeded by “Beiträge”.

So I am wondering: would it be hard to give the spam filter a tad of context-sensitivity? That it blocks out “Hamburger” and “soma” by default, but not when they appear as substrings of a given list of strings?

I’ve modified the spam filter so that soma now has to be followed by a non-word character to trigger the filter.

Hamburger would be a bit more tricky to allow it to be followed by Beiträge but not anything else. Do we get a lot of hamburger spam?

I think that it's fine to just plain allow ‘Hamburger’!
