”Waiting List” Abusive Word at Ongame

So I was grinding some low stakes PLO on one of the Ongame skins. Since the launch of the new P5 platform there are no waiting lists for the games.

“Why is there no waiting list?”

“The message contained abusive words”

    Hi Charlie,

    Ok I am bit confused by that. I tested the same thing myself and it works well for me (see screen shot ).

    I am sorry to say that I have no information on waiting list topic as such. Like always people have different views on if it was a positive or negative move to remove it and I think it is an interesting discussion.

    Ciao, Fredrik

    Fredrik, thanks for your response.

    I actually just typed it in as it is written in the post. It was in the lobby chat, not at the table. Maybe I just had a bad beat? =)

    Anyway, what's the status of the much wanted waiting lists?

    Hi Charlie,

    Interesting post but I am unable to reproduce the same outcome. I have spoken to the people responsible for the "abusive word list" and there is no filter "waiting list" in the table or lobby chat. I have also tried it myself using the Heypoker client on a play money PLO table without the same result (screen dump here ) and I was able to write both "waitinglist" and "waiting list".

    How did you go about when you experienced the blocking?

    Best regards, Fredrik Kjell
