[Solved]Spam warning

Post by Arctic_Eddie » Mon Dec 14, 2020 7:40 pm

In the CAM forum, what do you use it for, I posted a reply to another user with a photo and description of airplane ribs. The forum would not accept my post and declared it as spam, which it clearly was not. I remove some symbols, degrees and inches, without success. I then removed the photo attachment and it was accepted. I posted immediately and separately the photo and it was accepted. Later, I discovered an error in a number in the text post and tried to edit that post but it was again declared as spam. What is the definition/rules for spam?

I figured out what term triggered the spam warning. In my post, I mentioned the source of 1/2" foam board, the popular US company, HD. After removing, it accepted my update.

I would still like to see a definition of prohibited terms for spam.

Hi,

The given solution in the Forum FAQ is:
FAQ: Why did I receive a warning?
>> Contact the board administrator if you are unsure about why you were issued a warning.

So I guess you need to PM Andrew for that ...
What can also be rejected with the text in question.
The solution is then to include your text as a text file.

The set of rules ...
I will vote for it.
Getting really tired of re-posting endlessly until it's accepted. :wink:
Back doesn't always turns back ...
Fortunately, I got into the habit of preparing such in a text editor.

Regards,
CVH
