    Hey!

    We walk a fine line between running a spam-overrun forum and one where the good folks can post but the bad folks cannot. To keep it clean around here we use a number of robots. The robots don't always get it right.

    If you find yourself blocked from posting with a message about your post appearing to be spam it's generally the case that you're trying to include a link in your post and your post count is below the threshold for being allowed to include a link in a post. The easy solution here is to post more posts without links in them.

    If you are certain there are no links in your posts and you're still being caught in the spam filters you can direct message (DM) @iaresee and he can help you through the problem. Give him a few days to turn help requests around.

    Hey I had a post here, what happened to it? Seriously. Anyway, @iaresee, Ian :), How do I "DM?" I only know about "Start a conversation."

    Thanks
