Hello, Bizarre PM and trouble posting

by onealjn » Dec 27th 07 6:10 pm

Hello All,

I am a tea newbie of sorts. This is a great resouce and I have been lurking here for quite some time.

Strange thing happened when I tried posting to a tread. The first three times I tried, my post was not posted. I re-wrote the thing and it worked.

After having successfully posted, I noticed I had three PMs. Each was a warning saying that I had used a "spam" word in my post. I assume that is why my posts were not successful.

This seems odd, as the message did not relate what the "spam word" was. Interestingly, if you click my profile you can read my attempted posts.

Weird,

Jason

Yep, that happens. I'm guessing the tagged word was estrogen, as lots of spam these days involve hormone replacement.

It's no big deal. Once a word post is tagged from a possible spam word, it's tasked to our moderators to look it over and decide.

As you can see, your original post it up and running.

Have a good one!

Welcome to the forum and yes, Fuka is correct.

Spam is public enemy number one of TeaChat followed closely by lipton tea bags.

I did read the rules. It says basically no mentioning of products unless via word of mouth. I was actually pointing out a deficiency in a product IMHO, a product already mentioned and linked to in a previous post.

Oh well. Weird that a hormone is tagged as spam. Thanks for posting the message.

Jason, yes, weird is right. But not as weird as all the spam this forum is bombarded with. It can be mind boggling.

So, let's talk tea, not spam. Unless of course you eat spam with your tea.

What is in your cup???
blah blah blah SENCHA blah blah blah!!!
