    Getting very frustrated. Spending time trying to respond to people's questions and participating in posts but more than half of my messages are not showing up. First I thought it was me but I see now that I'm being censored somehow. I know nothing I have posted violates any forum rules and I'm sure it will be helpful- so why is it not being put through?

    Just a guess - the anti-spamming software might be picking up your posts as spam. Happens sometimes, especially during certain times of the day if you're a new member with few to no posts.

    Have you tried to post an into thread? :)

    First post is supposed to be moderated, but it tends to let the first through, and then not allow random ones until a mod clears you.

    Also, joining 6 months prior, then suddenly posting a ton of posts after nothing, will definitely get you caught up in spam filters ;) So that's probably why... just have to wait for a mod :)

    Don't panic! That happened to me as well, when I first joined I made an intro thread, then randomly it would pick no less than 50% of my replies and new topics to "hold in limbo" till a mod could catch and retrieve is. It happens a lot here until you've been established for a while, and even some older members have recently been picked on by the spam filter and randomly banned for no reason.

    I think yours got caught in the filters because you don't have many posts and it had a link. We get WAY too much link spammage :(

    Well there you go! I just had to ask someone off forum who's also on here to get me un-banned! Got caught in the spam filter for the big time now myself. So, yeah, try not to worry, keep asking a Mod if your posts aren't showing, and keep at it :)! I wish we didn't have to use those Spam filters at all, it's such a pain, but the Spammers are also a royal pain.

    Thanks - I was ready to throw in the towel.

    Did my post about Bowwowflix.com go through? I was trying to help the kid with the pitty cross by suggesting that video rental company. I tried posting several times but the link wasn't showing up.

    I saw it a while ago, so it did to through.
    Many of us know of bowwowflix, too, and many use it! Haha

    Do you have FB?

    I know a lot of people have been going to the Chaz page and saying when they are blocked. They have been getting responses pretty quick there.

    It happens we get a TON of spam and unfortunately the system to catch it isn't perfect.

    I have FB, but don't know of the Chaz page. I had to ask Sizzle, on a different forum, to help rescue me.

    It's called Chaz Addicts. I didn't find out about it until pretty recently too.


    Try messaging a mod. They can ok your posts. The spam block probably just got you by mistake.

    Unfortunately, it's an automated process. None of us can find a rhyme or reason why "legitimate" posts get moderated as opposed to spam posts.

    I approved your "lurk" post. Just PM me if it happens again. I'm on and off throughout the day.

    Errrrm, thanks, but now my posts are disappearing, including this one that you replied to and my intro thread? Will I still be here by the end of the day? I feel sort of like I'm slowly vanishing and it's creeping me out.

    Well, I went through pages and pages of stuff on the control panel and none of your missing posts were there, Millie :( I'm not sure where they could have gone!

    I'll do a little more digging.
