        I tried to make a post but got a reproducible 403 error.

        I the 403 error when I post these words on the same line without the spacer:

        can execute
        –spacer-ignore–
        (run

        I believe you have discovered a site protection, rather than a bug – the 403 error tells you that you don’t have the required permission to perform any “execution”…

          I know what a 403 error is, it means “not allowed / access denied / forbidden”.

          I am NOT performing execution, I am talking about it.

          It makes no sense from a protection standpoint to just clip out random words that are vaguely related to running code because they “might run code”.

          It’s like you can’t take a book about gasoline on a plane because gasoline is flammable and not allowed.

            Some sort of anti-XSS?
