    I see there was a late entry to the poll, the "Tell posters how to add the ®..." was added after many had already voted. Now matter how simple you make it, it will be too complex for some folk. One forum I participate on added symbols to their list of smilies but then assume people can master the add smiley button...

    If the word R O M E X were added to the list of blocked words, would not it still be blocked if the ® was appended?

    Even if the ® was appended, there is still their demand to "state on your message board that ROMEX® is a registered trademark of Southwire Company" which I'm sure they want to be displayed on every page the registered trade name is used.

    They are the ones the Romex company is trying to reach. If they want Romex, buy it, if they want some other nonmetallic covered wire ask for that.
