Contact Form 7 Blocked words

We are receiving "there was an error trying to send your message" with an orange border indicating spam in submissions. It was happening with 100% of our tested submissions. We found out that all of our submissions were being blocked because the word "app" was on our blocked list. However, "app" was never used in the submission, but it is used in the electronic meta data collected on the submission:

Upon further testing, the spam block was also triggered when we blocked the word window, apple, or any other combination of letters used in the above screencasted string.

This will need to be corrected so it does not improperly block words based on the meta data collected from the form submission.
