You may have noticed the kitchen related spam over the past few months.
Our attempts to address this issue have troubled people far and wide. We’ve rang the company and explained the pontlessness of their campaign and the distress it’s causing.
Several forum users have remonstrated with them. We’ve reported them to various ‘official bodies’ and some great IT brains have been swept in to deal with it.
Our spam filter has been cranked up to it’s highest setting- which is why you may find yourselves faced with Captcha codes.
Some of you have found your posts either not appearing, or disappearing.
This is not because the forum doesn’t like you, or because you’re doing something wrong- it’s because the filter has deemed your post ‘suspicious’.
It is more likely in a moderation queue, waiting for the nod. Don’t panic, it will appear eventually. Think of it like the UK summer- just a tad delayed.
Why has your post been quarantined? Hmmmmmmm. Often it seems a mystery to us too.
This is more likely to happen if you post a link to another site- so for now, it may be wise to send links via a private message.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our long suffering mods who’ve been deleting spam by the shed load every day, with admirable humour and tolerance.
Apologies are in order for the continued inconvenience, confusion and irritation all of this may be causing you. Rest assured we’re onto it and though weary, determined to solve it.
Please bear with us…and thanks for your patience.
