Not a spammer

Post by MrCrlhm » September 18th, 2021, 10:52 am

Hey there mods and spamfilters. Tried yesterday to post my first reply to someone and got blocked for promoting other products and/or sites. That was not the case in any shape or form but after reading a bit more here on the forum I realised that there's an ongoing problem with spam.
Here are 3 pics from todays little workout and I think I linked my logbook in my signature just to show I'm a real user...
Oops, I see now that my pics can't be attached because my attachment quota is full :/ I hope the link to my logbook is enough then, got my C2 in August here in Sweden and thought it be good to be part of this forum.

Welcome on board, and well done for making it past the first post filter! Not sure what got you blocked the first time (it wasn't me :)), but the reason doesn't always get tagged accurately. I tend to generally leave that default one on especially when deleting the Russians unread.

We get some sneaky attempts to get through, but we don't get things wrong too often. Thanks for persisting!

Pictures need to be hosted on another site (e.g. Imgur) and then linked into the post using the IMG tags.

Thank you,
it was probably just that I am connected through a vpn that flagged my post. Thanks for the tip on the pics :)
