Bitemarks and bloodstains That is correct coachmark2.

The anti spam system can produce false positives unfortunately but a few FPs is better than not having the systen.

I believe the limit on having posts moniotored by the system will be around 100 posts if this system is the same as the last we had.
The mods also have an option to "trust" members which stops their posts being monitored, which is what mcg75 is using to fix the issue as FPs come up.

coachmark2 For those wondering, I suspect (but cannot say with 100% confidence) that the filter you encountered was an attempt to halt the absurd amounts of spam that OCN has been subjected to in the past.

We generally have four or five robo-accounts that join and post 10-20 threads each about how you can "Watch XYZ soccer game live in HD" on their sketchy website.

You ban the accounts then they come back.... redface.gif So I suspect that the message you're seeing is in response to that.

Edit and note: I am not a moderator or staff member. I'm just another guy

m0n4rch Got this as well. I am new here though, so is it a bug or a feature in my case?
Don't know if it'll even post this reply but I'm gonna try.

mcg75 I found that kind of odd as well.

But you should be ok from here onward regarding that issue.

claudekennilol I just posted a message in a thread I started earlier today and got a message along the lines of "because you're new here your thread has been held for moderation before being posted." Now I may not post here often (hardly ever because I'm just not the type to post often), but I think either the filter message needs updating or something is broken because I'm definitely not "new".
