First Few Posts Not Working??? Read This

New Members are very important to us....

As you know the internet has many Spammers so we have devious anti-spam software on the forum. However sometimes it makes your initial posts go into the Big Bad Spam Filter in the Cloud.

So if you send a Post, or a Reply, but it doesn't get onto the Forum within 5 minutes you may need to make sure you don't have URL Links in your post or triggering words like "Come buy this stolen phone".

If you have a problem try putting a SHORT text-only post in reply to this, and we will kick the computer and recover your posts.

Once you make a few posts the spam filter will know who you are and you'll not be bothered by it again.

Happy sailing!

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

I just had a post get caught up in the auto-spam filter. Oddly, it was my third post and the first two worked fine. I think it went to a "Deleted Posts" section which I don't have the ability to see. I'm not 100% sure.
