Default annoying error message

can somebody explain why am I getting this message:
Critique may not contain any reference to points that will be given in the future.
when the comment I have written doesn't say a single thing about points, future and all that. I've tried to re-write the comment several times, hoping to avoid a word or phrase that might look like a "reference to points that will be given in the future" to the TE script, but no such luck. quite annoying actually.

Can you please copy and paste the exact critique you are getting the error message on? I'll see if I can figure it out...

I know the admins/ mods put somehting in place to stop people from over-critiquing with promise of returning later to award the points. I can see you've posted 20 critiques today.
- Try posting the critique without the :-) or ;-) see if that makes a difference.
- Try posting the critique with no smiley (ie: NR)

Hope this helps,
- Dan

hi Dan, and thanks for response.
yes, I posted 20 critiques yesterday, the one I had trouble with was #17 or something :) no problem before or after. and this is what I tried to write:
most surreal scene, but the blooming trees unmistakably show spring, there is nothing more cheerful and optmistic than pale pink blossoms against the saturated blue sky. the rock formations seem to be straight from Dali's painting, I like a lot the contrast they create with "pop-culture"-like trees. great shot, my compliments.
for the life of me I cannot figure where I violated "no promise of points" rule. no ";)" there, and I could not add the comment even as "NR". I'm not in a habit of "promising" points, it doesn't make any sense to me, and on top of that I'm well aware that we cannot edit critiques later than 15 min after posting, so this error message sound quite strange.

best,
Kristine

lol, I feel kinda proud to have created this mysterious combination of words :)
jokes aside, I'm sure there's a combination of characters somewhere that throws off the scrips and makes it think I was promising points. no big deal, I'll try to figure a slightly different comment for that photo. just funny :)

This reminds of the photos being removed because of no title when symbols such as // were used instead. It's getting a bit out of hand.
