AbuseFilter is overridden when creating a blank page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In Thai Wikipedia, we have a filter[1] preventing creating pages which are too short. It works fine in all cases except blank page case. Examining the page creation which the filter fails to prevent, I found that the filter does detect it[2]. It fails to prevent the creation nonetheless.

I don't know if this is a problem of MediaWiki overriding AbuseFilter, or a problem of AbuseFilter itself. Please change this bug report to the correct section when the problem is identified.
