Monitoring all posts

Is it just me and mine or all posts that are being monitored for content before publishing?

It must be you, Joe. We don't look at posts before they are posted unless they get incorrectly caught in our spam filter. In which case, someone (usually Ariel) has to release them back into the wild.

I just tried to post and got the same message. This one will probably have the same results.

I've tried several times to post from my desktop PC. No go! I'm trying this time from my laptop.

Not just you

A few weeks ago I made an audio related post but named the title "Just for Kicks" which apparently is a favorite title of spammers. I contacted ariel about it and he put it back in circulation.

...no hiss

It's vital to have test points to monitor activity - otherwise a post could induce lots of intermodulation between posts...this would in turn, of course, set conditions where the server hosting the forums attracts a signal to noise ratio similar to that of a power shower... and a slew rate (acceleration) of a gas truck. Forums should have a good harmonic response too - so I'm guessing that harmonic distortions are monitored and removed in the positive feedback systems here. 

I use my computer "Monitor" to look at these forums ...but you know what ... when I stick my ear to the side of my monitor I can't hear any hiss or background noise of any kind...

It must be that the server running these forums are using the best oxygen free and vacuum tubes of the highest quality. surprise

We'll look into this, Tmsorosk. It shouldn't have happened als long as you followed our posting rules and didn't words that would have triggered the spam filter.

Spam Filter

Nope. for some reason, your posts on this thread were all caught in the spam filter. After you posted your first message that was caught in the filter, you should have a received a message from the website in your browser along the lines of "your comment is currently being reviewed."

We apologize for your comment being caught in the filter. Unfortunately, it can be a touch unpredictable in what it decided to hold back sometimes. Repeating the same post over and over does not help.

You should see all the posts you tried to make now.

Unless your post is in direct violation of forum rules/spam, your post would not have been removed.

Occasionally, threads are relocated when they are in the wrong category.

I apologize for this. It would have surely been an error.

If your post was in response to a post that did violate our rules, when we deleted that one, your post would have been collateral damage. Perhaps that is what happened. In any case, apologies for the deletions.
