    Hi,

    I posted a comment in the General Technical Q&A forum (thread here) and it appears with the note that

    I've not seen that before, and I appear to be able to post normally in other threads. GTQA is obviously not a restricted forum. Is that just a burp in the system?

    Did you post a bad word ? Or link ?

    Maybe they are flagging content.

    Or, Big Brother is watching.

    That's a good question. The post simply quoted the previous poster (who presumably did not have the same problem,) and added a single sentence:

    "The page says it doesn't contain any metallic chemical element?! What about the Fe in LiFePO4?"

    I don't see any dirty substrings in the text, so I'm stumped about the content. But as I said, this only seemed to happen with a single post, so at this point it's mostly a matter of curiosity.

    There was another instance of this just yesterday, also in a forum not normally moderated "per each post".

    Probably just a system glitch.

    Yes - others have mentioned it too. It's some weird glitchy thing lately.

    I'm sure they'll narrow it down and fix it.

    Trying to stop spammers has taken a toll on members.

    Ah! I had not thought of that. Perhaps there's now some automation to block the Chinese spamming? I know one of the posts that got flagged had atrocious spelling, as did the guy's post (another thread, not this) - could be the algorithm looks for gibberish? We are able to weed through lousy spelling in posts, but maybe that's what is triggering it?
