Digging out all the kluges and various FUBARs is taking a lot longer than expected.

And then there's the changing of the servers
Thanks.

Oh, and tell me about a forum out there who doesn't change servers often. It's like the rest of technology, the moment you upgrade, you're outdated! lol


So, I'm going to give it a little bit longer, but it seems I'm still missing a couple posts? I hope they didn't get trashed! Took me a half hour to write the one!

I'll look again. There's nothing in the "to be moderated" que. I've just spent a good 20 minutes clearing THAT out. Again.

There's a long one in the thread on vomiting and digestion? Is that the one that was missing?

If not, give me an idea of what threads they might have been in so I can look through for soft deletes. I think I'm the only mod who can do full deletes. I think. That kind of stuff has been wonky, too.

That's it! But, I'll have to go look, I made another post in my intro thread that said "needs mod", and that thread isn't popping up in my "new posts" . Hmm...


EDIT: Okay, the one in my intro is up!

I think things like ~ in a screenname tend to trigger the filters. Or strange combinations of letters, since a lot of the spam is characterized by that. Most of it's either bot generated or it comes from places where English is unfamiliar.

Ah, that makes sense. Sorry about that, that is how I first made my user name years ago, and I love the little "~" things .
