Failed to Validate Description and Title

Unable to edit nomination of a memorial bench.

Appears to (perhaps) be related to the family's last name of [G o z z o], which I believe to be of Mediterranean origin. He was a Town Commissioner, so he was a person of some import. These are the messages I see when attempting to edit the nomination. I am a little concerned it will go into voting before I am able to improve it. Please let me know if this is a bug or some other issue. Thanks!

    Yes, it's a "known issue" that the Wayfarer management system is too restrictive. "Gozzo," for whatever reason, is a blocked word. Niantic has acknowledged this concern but has yet to make any improvements.

    I tried to do a word search of what could possibly be bad connotation for someone's last name as shown here. I found nothing, not unless something it's because it's one letter off from a **** character.

    several weeks ago, this stop was submitted and rejected because of "Photo Orientation". Photo was taken at a slight angle. But that time it allowed "G.o.z.z.o" in the title and description. It seems very buggy.

    Hello, Has there been any update on this? My nomination has gone into voting. It is very awkward to nominate a perfectly legitimate memorial bench and somehow not include the family's last name in the title or description.
