This is the comment in question. The text of the comment reads
Content contains unsafe or unknown tags., and it stands out because the space between the text and the buttons below and above the comment is smaller than with other comments. Reference screenshot.
The source of the comment doesn't contain any reference to the words ''Content contains unsafe or unknown tags", but instead reads:
the sjw/npc mindset is based on a theory called hermaneutic phenomenology. Also called bracketing and literally states that you shoud suspend judgement about the natural world to instead focus on analysis of experiences. Edmund Husserl (1858-1938) developed this idea a long time ago and these people are playing the long game and a lot of those efforts are able to be seen for what they are more easily because of the internet. It's the theory of facts<feelings and its bullshit but in their minds because it is an academically accepted method they feel they are right and so they are, Amazing!
I have never seen Voat edit a message with a warning like this, and I don't see what within the message is unsafe or unknown. Is it possible this comment originally had something malicious within it (dangerous links?), and that was removed even from the source in order to protect users, and the warning message above was placed to explain that the comment was editted?
Or is this just a bug?
Very strange behaviour that I've seen before. /u/PuttItOut or /u/Cynabuns any idea what this is? I have CSS disabled by the way, so i don't think I'm crazy.
EDIT: Whoa. I just editted this post to remove the ` from around the source text in question, and my entire post was replaced with the words "Content contains unsafe or unknown tags."
I think this is a bug, that has something to do with the presence of the
/ and the
< in the comment, maybe?
EDIT: I am very confused by this, but it is clear that, as /u/Sakusha pointed out, the
< character is responsible. However, this error only triggers if specific conditions are met:
a large enough number of non-numeric characters exist beyond the
there are enough whitespace characters, proportional to the number of non-numeric alphanumeric characters
<a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u z w x y z a b c will trigger the error, but
<awbwcwdwewfwgwhwiwjwkwlwmw nwowpwqwrwswtwuwzwwwxwywzwawbwc will not.
<feelings and its bullshit but in their minds because it is an academically accepted method they feel they a will trigger the error, but
<12345678 234 234 23456789 234 12 12345 453567 4545324 43 23 65 123456789566 3333333333 345345 3456 3456 3456 3 will not. It seems that the longer the strings involved, the more strings are needed to trigger the error. It's all very strange and I'm sure someone familiar with HTML could explain why this happens in a few seconds. At any rate, this might be considered a BUG since it managed to effectively alter the contents of an unsuspecting user's ordinary comment.
