As an aside, if you see that this happens to a couple of your posts when you're starting out, the best thing to do is not
to repost the thread/post, but contact a member of the moderation team. They can review the moderation queue, and if your post was held up by the system to be reviewed, then a member of the staff for that forum or a senior can 'validate' the post, and usually take another measure to try to reduce the likelihood that the system will flag your post(s) as spam.
Hilarious. Detects legit thread as spam, doesn't stop actual spam
