Can we get "quickbooks" banned? Give it the es(ort treatment?

It's something we're considering, for sure. We do want to be careful of banning so many words that it interferes with enjoyment with the forums. Thank you for the suggestion!

As an aside, finding Quickbooks won't always work, as the spammers are using look-alike Unicode characters (called homoglyphs) that are not standard text, of which there are many. I know that your system allows you to evaluate text and modify it (a la Ford subcompact); if it can also refuse to accept a post, then the wildcard search string (a "regular expression") I posted in April should work, as it finds nonstandard text (that is, characters that don't belong to the standard ASCII set) and phone numbers, even if they have multiple characters between number groupings, e.g, 1-(203)-123 -4567.

Actually, now that I think about it, the forum now allows emojis, which are Unicode characters, so the string I provided won't work as written -- below, the part in bold would need to be modified to NOT exclude emojis (the italicized part finds phone numbers with up to three characters between number groupings.

How is this forum seems to be the absolute worse for this spamming?  This morning it was nothing but these posts.

And now an armada of "how do I contact Quickbooks?" canoes...  I mean... why would anyone ever care to contact Quickbooks anyway?

I wonder if any post including the word Q***kbooks can be prohibited.
