URLs filtered by blacklist should be highlighted in message


(Websites ::, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)

URLs that are caught by the blacklist should be explicitly called out.  I recently tried to put meeting notes on the wiki and they had a number of URLs in them and it wasn't clear which URL triggered the spam protection (all it says is "The following text is what triggered our spam filter: Array ").
The historical reason for this, basically, is to prevent gaming the system. If a spammer is told explicitly what link was refused they can just try a different one.

Most of our list of sites/links to block comes from other sources, notably Wikipedia, so it is likely that the one causing you issues came from there originally.
Understood and that makes sense.  The issue is that Mozilla is now actively using :)
I got told by a other wiki admin what you were going to disable this now since you moderate all new accounts

I have updated the list to match Wikipedia's. Let me know if you still have issues.
