    Agreed. This is affecting our ability to respond. What's the point if your post won't be approved for - possibly - hours?

    Eh. I've gotten one post held for moderation in, what, 3,700?

    Dollars to donuts it's probably because I used some blacklisted word. I'm kinda curious what it is, tho.

    That said, if there's a way to whitelist somebody, hey.

    I suspect that if our overlords start seeing a backlog of regulars' posts to sift through, they'll change the parameters.

    Getting them with regularity here too. I doubt a mod is even on right now, so my post which consisted of a simple sentence may be stuck for a while. You are all of course free to respond to my posts when they show up eight hours later, but I'm afraid I'd have long since moved on by then.

    One would hope so. I've had two responses in the DA2 thread hit with the filter; one a general post, the other a direct response to something a poster said. Like Drake pointed out, it's just... too late.

    I haven't had any held. Does this mean I am above/below suspicion?

    Actually how does the system decide to hold a post? Is it based on the wording or volume of posts per unit of time?

    Looks like they're stopping the right members from posting.


    It's possible that this post isn't entirely serious.

    Phasers may be set to overzealous right now, but my understanding of this antispam tool is that it needs a bit of time to learn. Be patient, please.

    Is this filter checking signatures?

    To be honest, most of the bots/spammers we see in posts have it in their signature, not their posts.

    Okay -- if a user has 50 posts or more it should let them through unmolested now.

    +1 for unmolested.

    Interestingly on a previous post that was flagged for moderation, I changed "1:00" to "a minute" and it worked.

    Thanks for attempting to defeat those evil machines.

    Hey!! I autocensored my post!

    That and I was being funny about me not needing moderation.
