I'll take weird error messages for one thousand, Alex

I was fiddling around with my profile on Amazon and in one of the text sections I entered:

Amazon responded with:
The text entered may not contain profanity

Further experimentation proved that entering any URL would cause this error message to appear. Even ! In fact, entering any text followed by .org or .com caused it to appear. Entering "www" also caused it to appear.

All this stuff was just fine if entered in the "web page" field, however.
