    Default Is the Spam Trap Eating My Posts?

    If so how to avoid it? I've never had this happen before, but the last post I submitted needed moderator approval to go through. The only obvious difference between it and the rest of my posts was that it contained links (fairly innocuous ones, though, Wikipedia, USDA.gov, and Merriam-Webster).

    I don't think there is any way to avoid it. The spam filter often snags posts by new members. When we approve them the system eventually learns to ignore them. It can take a couple of posts before the system learns to let you through.

    It might be best to avoid using the word 'Aventus', just to be on the safe side.

    We might also need to give the spam filter some chemistry lessons, JayH !
    If you have a problem with a held post, please send a pm & we can clear it for you.

    Thanks, lpp. I think this marks the only time I've ever cared about losing a post count.
