XF 1.4 Text Align In Signature

Today a user reported to me they were unable to set their signature, and gave me the text they were trying to use. After some brief debugging, it turned out to be the [center][/center] tags they were using.

They're only a member of the 'Registered' user group and that group has Allow for using text alignment in their signature.

Any idea why this may be happening?

Does the align button appear in the editor for them?

What is the exact error they receive?
Yes it does. This is the error pop up text:

Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator.

That's not related to the signature permissions, it's related to the spam settings.

You can change the settings or ask the member to alter the content.

Where would I adjust that? I haven't been able to find anything.

As a note, it's blocking something as simple as
[CENTER][URL='http://twitter.com']Hello[/URL][/CENTER]

I suspect it is the URL component which is being blocked.

Use the ACP search and enter "spam" to find the relevant options.

That string isn't blocked without the [center][/center] tags being there

Ex.
[center]Test[/center] - No error
[url="http://google.com"]Test[/url] - No error
[center][url="http://google.com"]Test[/url][/center] - Error

I've tried using the ACP search to find any relevant options without any luck :\

Options -> Spam Management

It's either the spam phrases that you've configured or Akismet.
You may need to disable Akismet if you don't have any spam phrases.
Ahhh, there we go. It seems it was Akismet causing the issue. It never occurred to me that might be scanning signatures as well. Thanks for the assistance :D
