The actress's middle name, 'Gay', unfortunately corresponds with a term often used for homosexual people. However, it's possible to verify it with multiple sources and is present in most non-english versions of the page.

Numeronym (filter log)
Description
I was adding a Numeronym to the list of Numeronyms. Specifically, I was adding "555" which is equivalent to "LOL" due to the fact that in Thai, the number 5 is pronounced "ha". It's a cute multi-lingual pun, and a Numeronym that shows up in real life (well, when using computers to chat when Thai's might be on the chat channel. Given the length of the Numeronym list, this is unlikely to add too much noise even if most people aren't all that interested in this particular Numeronym. The specific text I typed is """* 555 - LOL - Laughing out loud. In Thai, the number 5 is pronounced "ha".

Description
edit MY OWN user-talkpage, trying to give a beginning editor some advice on de-COATRACK procedures that eliminate all the non-RS citations. Eventually found a workaround, but this is the second time I've been bitten by the 'talk page abuse' filter in the last couple of months. Please turn the hypersensitivity down about three notches, ESPECIALLY when it is on the wikipedian's own user-talkpage where considerably more latitude is allowed, eh?

I was using some allcaps 'scissor the bad sources out' type of language, but I never figured out exactly what was 'abusive' according to the regex. Please give the *entire* regex a good looking over, pretty please, rather than just correct this one specific individual flaw, as I suspect it is being hypersensitive about more than just allcaps-talk-of-scissors.
