I unbanned you and released your post and replied to you.

As mentioned in the e-mail, I think it's probably due to the number of links in your last post but I'll add you to the list of users that the SPAM filter won't block. I think we trust you enough Wink

At my time of life the only spam I'm interested in comes in tins Big Grin

I hope I am in that list now too, I was surprised to get banned again this morning.

RE: Spam
The SPAM filter does have a mind of it's own sometimes. We're still working to strike the balance between false-positives and the forums being riddled with SPAM! It's harder than you think.

Apologises to anyone inconvenienced by this. I'll go through the user list and add most of the regulars to the exclusion list so that we can avoid further false positives.

RE: Spam
I think that is the only solution really, as the spam filter is well documented on the web to be heavy handed and only really recommended for bigger sites where manually deleting the spam is unmanageable.

I understand the need though, I wouldn't fancy having to go through every day checking for spam either.
