No obvious pattern...

that I can see. Maybe this is good to keep the spammers out.
FWIW, the posts I have made that got flagged/delayed were ones with lotsa links.

the great search begins

which thread were you replying to? and about when did you try to post?

I will do my best to find it and get it posted...

If anyone else experiences this, please post here - note what thread so it limits the hiding place possibilities :)

Flagged for spam again

Second time this has happened to me - is it because I'm posting links?

Posted a reply to the Inka pen thread in the Pens forum. :(

fixed

I don't think that is why... in fact I can't say why :) Good news is I found it and de-marked it. :)

that explains the popularity of Circa.

A comment flagged as spam

Rather than start a new thread, I'm replying to this one which seems to fit the bill.

Could an admin unblock the following comment please?

Thread: Substitute for Levenger "Walletini" (mini pen)?
Comment Title: Pen refill compatibility

Thank you,

Mark

Got it

Good use of this thread
Suggestion for other accidental spammers: add a link to the article you were replying to, if you can. Makes it easier to navigate

My first reaction was 'great idea', however every one of my comments that has been marked as spam has had links in, and most comments I made with links in during the past 2 days or so have been marked as spam. Still though, I'll try it in future and see.

Or just paste in the URL

without trying to link-ify it
That might get past the filters

Hmmm....I cut and paste the url and didn't link it and my most recent entry got flagged for spam. (Moleskine Cover from Renaissance Art post in the Journaling forum).

Got it.

Also cheecked your profile. You have been with us more than 2 months, so I added you to "notaspammer" group. Please enjoy the privilege.

Multiple sites?

... every one of my comments that has been marked as spam has had links in,

On the occasions when my comments have been marked as spam there have been several links embedded in the text. From the few that I can remember marking has been when I've given more than one link and the web hosts are different.

it's showing up now... not

it's showing up now... not sure WHO unmarked it.. but yeah, it's showing as "not spam".

i recommend that if you have issues... you post in the DIY Planner forum.

Thread in DIY planner forum

I very nearly did, but didn't want to create a new thread if one already existed. This came close enough. I think a single thread for posts mistakenly marked as spam would be nice, in the diy planner forum. Do you think that would be a good idea to do, or would separate threads be better?

Oh, and I think ygor beat you to it with my post. Thanks for checking though.

Tried to help out yesterday

Tried to help out yesterday about keychain pens and got that message. As far as I can tell that comment has shown up yet. No one will probably see this one either.

I see it, but you ain't registered

Well this comment came

Well this comment came through at least. It sounds like that's the same thread as my comment that was marked as spam. Hopefully someone will find it an unmark it as spam.

Here as well

Just posted a reply to http://diyplanner.com/node/4928 with a looooong link that could have tripped up filter...

Yay! I'm in the Spam Club!

From the Spam Log

I did not see a spammed comment over at the thread you mentioned. But the above post was flagged as follows:

spam_content_filter: 99% probability of being spam for comment "Here as well"

"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson)

You know, all of these

You know, all of these spammers should try selling us pens or planners or something instead of halloween costumes. That wouldn't be quite as bad then. That phrase seems to be a little strange for an item marked as spam. Can the filter be manually tweaked to remove some of the phrases we're triggering the filter on? Or does it just need training more with our valid comments? Then again, I'm reminded of the problems of coming up with manual ideas for filters. At my last job, my manager once said "All these spam emails seem to be pretty big, so how about we just filter out all of the emails bigger than a few hundred words?". I just nodded and smiled.

spam flagged

hey all - I just got flagged for spam - I put a link to a diy page in it, so that is probably why. How do we do links so that we are not flagged?

Oh, and can one of you GREAT administrators unflag little ole' me? :(

ciao, nay nay

A clue, please,,,

Where should I look ?
EDIT: I think I found it...

this one ? I added a link, if that's OK.

And I added you to the "notaspammer" group. I know we can trust Nay Nay not to spam.

flagged for spam too

I feel like I've come of age on this website now.
My last two replies under the Rolling your own Rolla / Circa disc thread
node 5088

aren't showing up. Since they have lots of links, I'm guessing they got flagged for spam.

Many thanks to any who can de-flag them!

-kmorris

i've released the two

i've released the two comments as not spam. I looked at your profile and you're current member status is just a few weeks shy of adding to the notaspam filter. I'll keep an eye on your posts and when you hit the two month marker for membership, I'll transfer you over to notaspammer.

Thanks for the patience,
/innowen

any chance

you could release mine too? Same roll your own thread, I guess it was a mistake to put in a url as a reference to show what I was talking about. I know I'm new but I promise I'm innocuous.
Thanks!

Flaged for spam... why?

Tried to post a link and marked for spam

So how do I get this resolved. I posted a link to my new creation which I am so proud of I just had to share it. But sadly it got spammed.......

I can try to find it, but you can help

All the threads here have a url like this:
http : // www . diyplanner . com / node / [a 4 digit number]
If you know the node number, it makes it so much easier for me to find and unspam your posting

Someone marked yer post as not spam so it shows up, and I added you to the notaspammer group. That SHOULD take care of any posts from here on out!

i may have unspammed it and forgotten to reply that i did... ::snicker and retreats into the shadows::

And I was looking for it too

And wondering what Twinz was drinking.
"This post is not spam ! WTF !?"

And wondering why a person marked as "notaspammer" would be troubled by the filters.

Great coordination, folks :)

HistoricStitcher,

I've marked yer account as "notaspammer" so hopefully you'll never get flagged again. Unfortunately i was not able to find your original post "for sale", so could you please repost it? The spam filter ate it right away. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

General note to everyone about spam... if your post does not show up after you submit it, please let us know right away. That way we have a better chance of getting it out before it goes away permanently.

Thanks,

I'll rememeber to be more prompt in the future!

TechnicalGuru,

Thanks for letting us know. The only spammed post I saw was located at: http://diyplanner.com/node/6210. Can you tell me the names of the other threads you think you may have been caught in?

I've also added you to the notaspammer list, so you should not get caught in the future.

Thank you,

Hi /innowen,

This was the only thread so far.

Thanks a lot

Me too!

Twice I have tried posting a new topic in the Template Request forum. Both times I've been told that my messages were tagged as spam. :( Help? Please?

Thanks!
p.s. I was not posting spam.

Freed!

Osa,

I checked all the posts that you are related to and they have been released from the clutches of spam. In addition, I have also marked you as notaspammer, therefore you should not encounter issues with your posts being blocked in the future.

thanks for sticking with us,
/innowen

All smiles

Thank you!

Flagged as well

I was flagged for potential spam as well. I posted under Template Requests & Design regarding the topic of Templates for a work at home mothers planner. I can see why WAHM would tip off spam, but it's not...I'm just asking for ideas & questions so I can created a planner ;c)

But I am a little concerned - does your spam filter mean I can't talk about using my planner to organize my shoes, cigarettes, or recreational pharmaceuticals? I guess I won't be posting those templates...

It should answer your question.
