    The others were on twisted pair wiring and their color code, VoIP and security systems, and VoIP and 911.

    I can't get a 'how to guide' posted but every spamer in Russia can open a new thread.
    The forum software does the detection.

    I just cleared out the queue approving everything legit.

    I'm going to be contacting people who offered to help moderate in the next week or so and kick that off.

    Each message is analyzed by the software/spam service individually and flagged or not flagged so in that case it didn't like something in one of your messages, but did the other. The one it didn't like is pending for us to approve.

    I know the posting delay is a hassle sometimes when it gets a false positive but you'd be amazed how much legit spam it does pick up. We could have several full-time employees deleting SPAM all day if we didn't use it.

    This was the message that was flagged (and it had a quote of VoipoBrandon's message in it): "Hmmm, I wonder: My FALLOVER number is my cell phone. I wonder if there is any connection there?"

    Look at this message (#11 which was flagged): http://forums.voipo.com/showthread.p...5596#post25596

    And then look at the next message #12 which was not flagged.

    My reply to you (previous message) was "tagged for moderation" ... it's still hidden as I type this one. But will this be tagged ... let's see.

    No it wasn't. It seems every message I post with a "quote" in it is flagged,

    Thank you for posting! Your post will not be visible until a moderator has approved it for posting.
    This is getting old! Maybe consider countryblock or something similar on the server?? There are addons to other forums that make signups by these bots close to impossible. Im curious if they exist for these guys also...

    I had one posted to the BYOD forum about a week ago still waiting to be "approved". I guess its lost in Digital Disneyland.


    ***Update 12/26 - I see it now but it did take several days before it was moderated and allowed to be posted.

    And I just had a short post with no URLs go into moderation. Strange.
