No one uses applescript anyway

Jordan Wiens posted a funny example on Apple website on how sometimes security solutions hinder normal use. For example, when searching for “applescript” on the “script” part of the string is removed and a search for “apple” is performed instead. It’s hard to tell what type of intermediary device this is or what exactly its trying to do, but whatever it is it doesn’t like the word script. This makes it impossible to search for applescript on their website.

Further amusing is that only the all-lowercase word 'script' is being removed -- searching for appleScript works fine!

Apple are funny like that.
