On my wiki, I am attempting to create a new page. This page also happens to have the same name as another page in a separate namespace. The page I am creating is a redirect page to something entirely different. The contents of this new page are "#REDIRECT [[The Same Game Test (3.5e Guideline)]]", the page I am creating is called "Same Game Test", and the other page in question is called "Forum:Same Game Test".
However, when I create this page, I get an error: "Looks like spam (222)". Now, regardless of the fact that it's not spam, I have to say this spamfilter is extremely stupid. I am a beaurocrat on the wiki, and the wiki beaurocrats are certainly not going around creating spam. Is there any way to turn off this filter for admins and beaurocrats?

- Additional notes: The page was deleted in the past, and this only happened when I used Special:CreatePage, not action=edit&redlink=1 Surgo 16:16, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
There is a bug in Special:CreatePage right now leading to that message. It is being looked into. Its happening to a bunch of people, with varying text and reasons. Additionally, none of the spam/vandalism filters we use ever look at who is doing the edit, so there is no way to make it not apply to a group such as bureaucrat or sysop, or even staff. --Uberfuzzy 22:39, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
