No flags

by GSG In reply to Good troubleshooting tips

I've looked through the flags I've gotten the past few days, and I don't see anything you've posted that's been flagged. Typically, if we kill a post, we take into account how long the member has been here, especially if there are links. The vast majority are posted by people who create an account, create one or more posts with questionable links, and then go away. Those are nuked with extreme prejudice. If we're unsure, we discuss it, and typically leave it if it's a long term member unless it's really egregious.

You are right

"The content they choose to allow to be displayed is up to them."
Of course based on the power of the views, follower and ad posts/clicks.

With political topics actually topping TR's popularity list and being restricted to a non-indexed, off topic forum, it would only make sense to allow such contents.

P.S. I've always thought of you in very high regards! (damn, spit iced coffee on my screen that time...)

You know I've noticed it too

I noticed that but then actually found it, somehow, I don't really remember. Another post had a few words I though may be blocked/auto filtered though. When I changed the copy a bit, it all of a sudden appeared.

So I don't have a real example that I can remember, but I too have found the mystery you have. I just reposted and changed things and it appeared, wouldn't be the first time TR censored me (which they are entitled to, of course) so I didn't bat an eye.

Rings a bell

by Shellbot In reply to Test Title

A couple months ago I was trying to make some posts and no matter what I did, they wouldn't post. I actually didn't post for 3 months after that because i thought my work internet was blocking me from posting.

I thought I was going crazy as I didn't even consider that my posts would be denied without some sort of "sorry, your post cannot be posted". Thats bad form.

I'm guessing the problem with a 'Sorry, ...'

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Rings a bell

is that it lets spammers know that their post didn't go up. If they know they're unsuccessful, they'll presumably try a different phrasing.

Do you think they'd be that focused?

by aidemzo_adanac In reply to I'm guessing the problem ...

Just like doing a mass site submission to 300 engines, you'll get 30 or 40 that want more info and note submission couldn't be completed.

When not for a specifically targeted site, nobody cares about hippos happy house not indexing your site, it's not worth the 5 minutes to refocus on it and similar that deny instant submissions.

I don't think, in my personal opinion/guess, that spammer would give a damn if twenty or thirty sites of the 500 they auto post too rejected their ads. They are focused on the numbers game, like telemarketing, if the person says 'not interested, take me off your list', it is not cost effective to pursue it further. There are many PERSONAL reasons why telemarketers call back or even set such numbers to be auto-dialed every day for three months but, for the most part, it's not cost effective marketing to chase dead ends.

Again though, just MHO

Yup, TR has definfitely changed, Max.

by aidemzo_adanac In reply to Test Title

Once was a day when first thing Friday morning, PST, I'd be looking for the Friday Yuk, Neil always beat me to it or Colin with the time zone changes. Colin even started posting on Thursday to be first in. It would quickly follow with dozens of posts, everyone adding a few jokes for some Friday Yuk's. These days, nada, nobody has a sense of humour anymore?!.

You then got the Friday night music rocking away, it got REALLY popular with some killer posts and rare playlists, jck, yourself, neil and many others put up some brilliant tracks that are often forgotten.

Now it seems you can't even start a discussion properly? Not sure myself, I know that I can't post under my old account any more but this one seems okay for the most part, I have made a few tech posts (no links, no language etc.) that didn't show up and a repost, slightly changed and trimmed down even more, shows up.

Maybe TR needs to sign up for a tech support package with an offshore support team. Maybe one of their kids is technical and can help them with it, I dunno but TR has sure changed over the years, and I wouldn't suggest for the better. Not just because of Yuks and music posts but simply because it isn't as enjoyable within the regular groups anymore, people seem so disassociated these days, compared to what they used to be. Just like the people out in general public that couldn't give a toss about anyone but themselves.

The whole look and feel is just starched and clinical now, nowhere near as inviting as it used to be, not by any means.
