Blocked from posting because of "spam or inappropriate content"?

    Several times today, I've been unable to post things because I get an alert that says what I'm trying to post is "likely spam or contains inappropriate content." This has happened several times when I was posting stuff that wasnt spam-like or inappropriate at all.

    One of the posts I tried to make did contain stuff about God, and that message did post but it said "awaiting moderator approval." I realized it probably was too heavy on the Spiritual stuff to be approved (even though the poster was clearly a Christian seeking Chrisitan advice), so I decided to send the guy a private message instead. But I couldn't send it, because I got that same "spam or inappropriate content" alert. So... what, am I not allowed to talk about God with a fellow Christian person, even in private messages? I don't understand.

    It's also extremely frustrating to have an alert like that come up unexpectedly after writing out a super long message, because it deletes your entire message before you can think to copy it and save it elsewhere. So that really sucks.

    Just wanted to add to this...same thing happened to me last night when I tried private messaging a member saying that I "did not want to talk on the p h o n e" referring to a form of communication as AP's. It had the same message saying it wouldn't post because of spam or inappropriate content. I got rid of that line and then it worked.

    EDIT: Even now on this post, it says "awaiting moderator approval" so now I'm going to put spaces in between the word p h o n e and it will probably work.

    After you told me that, I tried putting spaces in between all of my "Christiany" words in the message I was trying to send, but it still didn't work. Super annoying. I'm trying to reach out and help someone, but I can't, and that's really irritating.

    Same thing happened to me...try deleting it first and then trying? Or put two spaces in between each letter maybe?

    I don't think it's going to work. I've tried deleting it and coming back a little while later, and the spaces. It doesn't seem like anything is going to work.

    Just tried again. Still can't send it.

    Can you send me what you're trying to post in a DM? I'll see if I can find out what content is triggering the spam filter.

    Beamer already reached out, and I emailed the message to the nofap email. I can't DM the message to you here because it won't let me send it at all to anyone. But I guess I could send it to you off site.

    Not trying to whine, I'm just informing: this problem has not been fixed.

    I was able to send the message I was trying to send that one day, but now it's happening again with another completely innocent message that isn't inappropriate or spam-like at all.

    I sympathise Castielle. I have not had it recently, but I have experienced this issue in the past. I suppose the problem is the filters are probably too narrow and so they are picking up innocent messages. :oops: It is incredibly frustrating though. :(

    Yeah, I just had this happen today for the first time, but it keeps happening. Could we get some sort of explanation somewhere of what the filters are set to detect so we can avoid them?

    happened to me too, but I figured out it was due to a certain word

    Suggestion: add long-standing members of good repute to a usergroup that this filter is not applied to.

    It can be done automatically, last time I played around in Xenforo anyways.

    I believe Alex told me he is already working on this, thankfully
