My last two posts (without hysteria) are being "moderated".
Did I do something wrong ?

Dare I say "me too" Bob

Looks like there may be a problem or we have both done something bad?

Hello Bob,

There are a few different reasons that your account may have been thrown into moderation. Changing your name, posting too fast, and other causes. I'm not sure which cause it was, but you have been unmoderated now.

Hello Dan,

Thank you for your feedback.

Can you help provide more details as to what your activity was like when this happened?

Me too. Moderated.
COW trying to keep traffic down due to FCPX update?
The advertisers want us back to keep things busy

I believe this is due, as you mentioned in your email Craig, to posting identical posts. There is a monitoring system which throws users into moderation who post identical posts within a short time frame. This helps prevent our boards from being spammed. If this happens to you, do not fret, you will shortly be unmoderated, and a single version of your post will be approved.

Thanks. It must have happened to a few of us who were rapidly posting after the FCPX update. I can't speak for other browsers (although I do use them) but Safari has a few quirks which increased the likelihood of a double post attempt.

Hello Dan,

After further investigation it appears your email was bouncing, which is a different issue than the other case. This is not a bug. It helps prevent us from getting marked as spammers by continuously emailing to email accounts that bounce.

Well that probably explains why I'm also not getting notification of new threads any more. So the comcast server must think you guys are spammers. I don't know what to do about that.

Hello Dan,

You might try adding bessie@creativecow.net to your contacts, and contacting them. The temporary block was lifted already. I submitted an additional request to not block our IP, but if you submit a request as well it could help. If the problem persists you might consider using a different mail service provider as comcast has had these issues before, while other mail service providers, such as Gmail, have never had such issues.

http://postmaster.comcast.net/block-removal-request.html

Our outbound mail server ip is: 65.49.44.240
Our domain is creativecow.net

Here's the bounce error:
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; delivery temporarily suspended: host
mx2.comcast.net[76.96.40.147] refused to talk to me: 554
imta30.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast 65.49.44.240 Comcast block for spam. Please see

Have a great day!

Hello Chris,

As was mentioned earlier in this thread, the issue could be a few different things, but is probably due to you double posting the same post in a short period of time, or posting too quickly. When this happens, do not fear, you are now unmoderated, and your posts have been approved.

What browser are you using?

Abraham
