There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.
It is because of the "badgerbadgerbadgerbadger" title on that one thread. Same thing was happening to me.
Would be nice to have words beyond a certain character length truncated with a "..." in the subscriptions page to avoid this. That's more of a feature request though.
Yeah I've seen Geeklist formatting screwed up by a long word of gibberish too, not sure how to avoid that, usually people ask the offender to delete the entry. Maybe just do not allow submission of a word beyond a certain character length.
