    Re: Spam Defense

    When people post a message that gets flagged or caught up in this Spam Defense system, they receive a message that tells them WHY and links to the first post in this discussion - which tells them Exactly what happened. People are just too lazy to read.

    Since this forum isn't really seen by most, maybe it should be a forum wide annoucement like the "Help us to keep helping you..." announcement on the top of every sub-forum? Just thinking aloud.

    I think it is that serious just because more people need to know about it.

    Re: Spam Defense

    It's unfortunate that it has had to come to this. There are plenty of legitimate posts (with links and images) that get flagged by this process.. But, it's a necessary evil.

    Instead of linking to images, attaching them would be better... Attachments do not require a link - and therefor, would not get moderated...

    Re: Spam Defense

    I am new here and came here to ask cadillca owners about a specific issue with their paint that I am experiencing. I would like to know if all Cadillac owners are experiencing this. I wanted to post pictures of the condition, but I was linked here. I can't send a PM to you with the post for approval because it says I need 50+ posts. I don't use IM. What are my options? The pictures are important to the post, not spam.

    First board that I have encountered this. You guys must get bombarded with SPAM.

    Can you believe somebody actually read the instructions? Congratulations, WordOfMouthDetailing, you've earned points!

    Yes, we do get bombarded with spam. Message boards are going through somewhat of an epidemic right now. Those without the proper tools are having their mods spend crazy amounts of time on it...

    Re: Spam Defense

    Hey, I just got the same message for a post about my new CTS-V. I am guessing that the filter did not like the Ebay link from the auction that I won. Anyway, it was just a post sharing the excitement and a word of thanks to everyone who answered my questions as I was looking for my next car.

    Sorry to hear that you have to manually approve threads, I'm sure thats a royal pain. Thanks for hosting this board and putting in all the time and cost that goes with it!

    Question about graduate school survey thread

    Hi
    I just posted a thread about a 2008 Cadillac CTS survey under the (Cadillac CTS thread) that we are doing for a graduate school project and contest. I posted the Cadillac National Case Study Competition link so people on the site would know that this is a legitimate contest and not a scam. I also posted the link to the survey. I just wanted to know that it would be okay to unflag it as spam. I think I posted it twice in erroe

    Thanks

    Me too. I just tried to post some photos a couple of times and got that message. I decided to click on the link and wound up here. Oh well, just wanted to share some pix I took.

    I just picked up a new camera, hopefully the pictures will get better.
