Spam filter?

Spam filter?


I was renewing my game advert with you. It was refused by the spam filter.

It had the same content already accepted, with a date change.



Almost every time I post here I get caught by the spam filter! It's quite harsh! I think it looks at the ratio of text to links in your post.

But the posts that are filtered will eventualy come back, yes? I spent about an hour putting mine together and it's not backed up anywhere....

Errr... I did another version without the excamation points, and it was yet again filtered.

Are there any tricks to get aroung the spam filter?

I have relaxed the spam filter a bit, but unfortunately the site is getting hit hard by spam attempts. If it still does not work, I'll try other ways.

I know this thread is several months old, but I'm having the same issues with the spam filter. I was able to get it through last month /eventually/ when the site finally returned a captcha. What's more, I don't know why I'm getting filtered out. I've used the advert at several places around the web, and I've even tried removinng parts of it to see if I could get through. Much like Kirok, I would like to know if there's tricks to avoiding getting caught by it. If I knew how to structure my advert it would be quite helpful.
