I recommend we put it back in, but as a Warning (not Disallow), and only for posts that are at least 90% all-caps.

BLP vandalism or libel (DO NOT USE - SEE NOTES COLUMN)penis, cunt, bitch, slut, prostitute, whore3DO NOT USE! This filter should not be used for Article Feedback in its current form, because it is intended for biographies of living persons, and looks for words like drugs, fired or fraud, which are perfectly acceptable in feedback posts. So I am removing all actions for now. If someone could edit it to only look for unacceptable obscenities, than we can add actions back again. The notes on this filter also say there are too many false positives. - FFAuto-flag3flaghttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/1891894182,215Sole SoulOliver Keyes

Claims of homosexuality, bisexuality, or transexuality in a BLPgay, homosexual2Hold for now, for technical reasons. FFthis will need to be adapted: a comment noting the importance of the Stonewall riots to the modern gay rights movement can't be distinguished from an attempt to slander (the original filter only checks *people*; this is not information that we currently pass in) - RehaAuto-flag2Flaghttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/339339430,539Oliver Keyes

Posts from repeat offenders (e.g.: users with 10 or more feedback posts flagged for abuse this month?)1Hold for now, too many technical and political issues.no, abuse filter doesn't have access to AFT data; also, the only action currently taken is to block incoming posts that hit any filter - RehaAuto-flag15Fabrice Florin
