Flagged for spam

  • I just tried to reply to a thread on alternatives to facebook and twitter, and askimet immediately flagged me for spamming, presumably for the crime of including the url for gab, suffix, ai, which is a twitter replacement. I think maybe the spam parameters here need to be loosened up a bit. Or perhaps if someone has been active here for a year without incident, that should be factored into the algorithm.

  • @paul1149 I think the system doesn't care how long you have been a member, the only thing it cares about are upvotes. You have 3 now, this should be enough. And yeah, unfortunately the spam prevention measures are needed.

    I pinged our community manager to ask teh webdev.

  • Damn, strike what I said. I didn't notice how many posts and reputation you already had.

  • Thanks much, @Gwen-Dragon and @luetage 🙂

  • hello paul1149
    maybe should not suggest that a spam blocker controlled by the large social sites could spam block its competition. they might catch-on. there used to be many alternates; what happened to competition for the lucrative social site business? sites based on flash will be eliminated as well.
    Don't block paul1149.

  • Yes, don't block paul1149! 🙂

  • hello paul1149 and hello everyone

    the first responses hinted at per user filtering, so why make it into a silliness? It is amusing that the system accepts blocking an entire post while we will not tolerate censoring of a few words instead. The benefit of the spam filterrs is difficult to acknowledge while it is mostly unseen by the forum users; that is the point correct? truly it does a bulk of a big job. filtering this internet stuff where we gatherr to share things about internet while it does not filter simplistic curse words.

    sgunhouse came in quite put-off with some exasperations concerning the spam filters. Use the url tags in the editor toolbar. Reach out to touch the tip of the spear paul1149.. try and try again.
