Review Containing Profanity?

Here's my review being rejected cause of profanity?  Can you determine where it is?

"I bought this weed whacker a couple of days ago.  I brought it home, plugged in the battery, did the minimal amount of required setup and then waited.  The battery doesn't take long to charge and it held the charge SO much longer than I thought it would.  I recently moved into a house that had been overgrown and nature was claiming it.  I started by trimming around 11 trees, a large garden,  the driveway, the mailbox and around a few overgrown bushes.  It stayed strong through all of that so I moved onto the area around the pool.  I mowed everything inside the fence with the weed whacker!!! I covered so much ground trying to drain the battery but in the end I ran out of stuff to trim before it ran out of juice.  Variable speed allows me to go between light trimming and heavy trimming to save battery life and the top end power is unreal; it easily cut through everything I put it against.  I am absolutely sold on this device and am eager to try their other products.  I would really recommend this weed whacker to anyone and everyone."

If the word weed is flagging for a weed whacker review that'd be crazy!!!

Mine got rejected saying the same thing, but it was because I had a link in it.  There are varying reasons, but when they review the post, it usually gets released and put up on the site.  I'm sure Amber can chime in on it.

Yeah, it's too bad the actual profanity isn't highlighted. At least you'd know what you did.
Yeah that would really add to the interface.

You should limit your whacking to the privacy of your home.
I did, I just did it outside so the neighbors could see how great it is.

It has been said that a good fence makes for good neighbors. :-)

Maybe *whacker*? The profanity filters can run the gamut and unfortunately don't take context into account.
But it is a weed whacker....

Yep, the more PC the comment the better chance it has to get through the filters.
No way, I'm cool with not leaving a comment over changing weed whacker to be politically correct.  SJWs are ruining everything. I know it's a little thing but it's ridiculous if that's the reason it's flagging for profanity.

I agree with this sentiment.

There's also the mention of overgrown bushes.

The only profanity I've come across Connor is the price of their batteries .. I had to take a second mortgage to purchase an additional 5ah battery.
