• Aggressive spam filter


    I made my first post a bit ago and the Akismet.com spam filter was so aggressive that it wouldn’t even let me link to other posts in this very same forum. It even was sensitive to some common workarounds of spelling out URL punctuation.

    Is it always like this or is it just because I’m new to the forum and experiencing some kind of heightened probationary period?

    I see others using links …

    [edit: well, I see it allowed a link to itself at least so it’s not completely cannibalistic ]

  • Now it should work, spam filtering is a hard task nowadays…

  • Yeah I had that experience too before. I’m glad chances are made. This is an attack on freedom of speech!

    No seriously, all this control is sometimes doing more bad than good

  • I’ve been trying to post elsewhere on this forum and have been blocked by the spam filter several times…

  • @bartsnapp you need some likes from users before you get around spamfiltering

  • Good to know!

  • i just give you some (think needs to be 7 ore more)

  • …and another 2 from me. :)
