Are you a spammer? ;-)

Lately, the website has been, shall we say, 'aggressively' filtering spam posts. I, and several other long-time members have been labeled spammers and our posts have been un-published.   I don't know if the sensitivity level has been boosted, or certain key words equate with spam, or what has happened.

I've noticed, with mine, that it happens more often when I use rich-text.  I'm using it now, and I'm not sure this post will make it to the board.

What I'd like to do is ask all of you to post any spam-related experiences you've had lately.  Rather than my dropping a note to the site owner and the new site maintenance guy every time someone has an issue (which is almost daily now), I'm hoping to keep all the issues right here and then the owner and maintenance guy can just come here and catch up every few days.  (Maybe we can identify some patterns for them by keeping it all in one place, as well.)

If you can copy/paste any messages the spambot has sent you, that might be helpful, too.

I tried to investigate some pattern but I really did not see any. Sometimes spam filter caught one word sentence and let appear long paragraph, sometimes other way around... links do not look like influencing the process. Perhaps spam filter was infected with cpni too, hence the strange behavior...

Stratton/Wheldon protocol 02/2006 - 10/11 for CFSi and many problems 30 years

I have had the problem for a few months. The web works a day, then 2-3 days doesn't work it stays as if it is frozen - I can see the old posts as they were sent recently (e.g. 30 min ago) and it shows so for maybe 3 days. In these days I can't post anything / no comment no blog entry. And the web usually freezes after my sending a comment or blog entry. Once also the message was shown that I am a spammer. But what I also noticed that this problem is when I use Opera browser, when I use the Internet Explorer the web works. But I don't use the Explorer regularly - maybe if I used it regularly there might be the same problem. I think it's too soon to say that this may be caused by the browser. But it's my way to get on the web - using the different browser.

I tried a  post with a link a few days ago and the site labeled it as spam.  I have also noticed the link function option is sporadically not working. (and it's not my computer ;0.   When the little box opens up to cut and past the link into, there is no "insert" button at the bottom of the option, so I have had to close it out and the URL is in the post, but not a "link" to click on.   

And, I have tried this using different browers (Mozilla, IE, Google Chrome....) same problem. 

I used to get problems very often but now, for some reason, I don’t.  The only things I can think of is that I now always use Word and don’t put too many links in the one post...............Sarah

  • Never had a problem - using Firefox and rich text (sparingly), links work too. Cool

  • Using lists too

 Just testing using a lot more rich text formatting than I usually use. Below is a straight copy and paste from the BBC to test out paragraphs. (Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V) Not using Word as an intermediary.

The evangelical broadcaster who left followers crestfallen by his failed prediction that last Saturday would be Judgement Day says he miscalculated.

Harold Camping said it had "dawned" on him that God would spare humanity "hell on Earth for five months" and the apocalypse would happen on 21 October.

Mr Camping said he felt "terrible" about his mistake.

But he said he could not give financial advice to those who spent their life savings in the belief the end was nigh.

No spam flag either - so what is it?

The site has been indiscrimate; Arttile had terrible trouble posting pictures, Evita has been blocked from posting and could just read... short-timers have posted five links and old-timers couldn't post more than five WORDS. Go figure.

I'm just hoping, by people posting their problems HERE, we can help the site manager figure out what's going on.

Well, I wrote a lengthy answer and used rich-text in order to make paragraphs. You guessed it; post went into the spam file.

Mack, I’m doing this using Word.  Its a portion of one of David’s short stories...............Sarah

 

“Bella and Eliot Lukin stood on the roof of the building, looking down through the crenellations.

‘It’s hereditary,’ said Bella. ‘I have a one in two chance of getting it. So does Charles. Do I wish to be tested? I don’t know. The outlook’s poor. Do I await the first signs of the disease? What do I do?’ She reached out for Eliot’s hand.

Eliot Lukin looked at her.

She had asked for his support and understanding. What could he do? The emotions are so difficult to fathom. On the one hand you feel such sympathy: on the other, you hesitate to remain within the ambit of their despair. That’s why friends usually drop away, and isolation sets in. Families tend to break up. Young people can run away, can pretend that the problem does not exist, have families.

Bella stood in her sorrow and her loveliness. Eliot Lukin put his arm around her. She was the most wonderful person he had ever met.

They kept in touch, remained friends. Bella was found to be clear of the disease, unlike Charles.

Ultimately they married.

Eliot Lukin, an accomplished cabinet-maker, found employment in a violin restorer’s, and learned to be a maker. He now works from home; Bella learnt from him. She’s very good at varnish-work I sometimes visit them; it is fascinating to see them agreeably working together in their workshop.

I don’t really know why I tell this story. I suppose because it’s very close to the truth. Perhaps that is the only reason.”

It really seems the problem to be with the browser. I have just written a new blog entry and when wanting to see it disappered completely and there was nothing. As I am very educateable Laughing before doing any action I use ctrl c and I paste it once more and send. Many times before I had to write my entry once more so now I always use ctrl c and paste (unless I forget itYell). But when I wanted to see my new blog entry there was nothingYell as many times before. I know that in a few days I will be able to see my entry but not now. So I am using Explorer now and I am writing my comment and I also can see that my entry is there. Problem with Opera.

Also what Sarah does / uses Word I also do it so, sometimes. It works and you don't lose your comments. But just losing my comments often reminds me I should use the Word. Late.Yell

I keep a “latest post” thing on my desktop so I always have it to hand to use.  I might be a spammer, though, because I sneaked in a link to my own rather out of date site!..............Sarah

The site is actually set to accept a large number of links in one post. (Larger than it actually permits, in practice.)

Seriously, no problem for me.  I did have a post held for the moderator to review once, but nothing that simply disaapeared.

Speedbird had one deleted at 8:25pm 31 May. Rica had one pulled earlier on the 31st. I'm mystified.

The comment you posted has been flagged as potential spam. It will not be visible until the site administrator has a chance to review it.

The above was written as I wanted to post my comment.

I could send the post after trying again.

I was suprised to find no new posts on the site, so I checked the 'flagged spam' module. To my surprise, I found Homina, Evita, Sarah, Lala, Katman and I have been tossed into the spammer pool in the last 48hrs. I have asked JimK and the site admin to try to rectify this. Fingers crossed.

I can't even post anything longer than this. Ridiculous.

Everything is going to spam filter. Site admin is working on it.

You, me, and everyone else here lost at least a few posts yesterday. The spam filter was full of them.
