Hi, I don't know why or when this happened but I know that it did work fine several days/weeks ago. The url for Facebook still works buy it doesn't for sticker boy. Anytime it's mentioned, it's replaced by asterisks, e.g. ********** I don't have any connection to them at all, I just found it odd and thought I had done something wrong.

sticker boy is mentioned there many times. if there is no space in between, it is replace by asterisks. Is this some sort of advertising issue? Just curious.

That happens when something gets added to the censor list. It must have been associated with spamming.
