Curious. I'll be interested to learn what the IB tech folks say.

Is it the combination of ....? Just 823? perhaps ....? Or only Q....?

OK, it requires the R, both lower case and upper case, in front of the digits to be masked. I wonder why.

R8 R82 ....

It seems to be specifically R 8 2 3. Google doesn't explain what it supposedly means.

Perhaps tied to scammers who have been spamming the forums of late?

I've put it into the Mod Forum too, so hopefully one of the IB team pick it up.

Yep! Sure enough, it's on our censored list. Most likely in an old spam-fighting effort.

I think the spammers have moved on from this sequence so have asked Internet Brands to remove the block on this sequence. Thanks for surfacing the issue, florens.

Test: Q823, 823, QR823.

It looks OK now.
