This site has a VERY TIGHT and COMPLEX SPAM catching tool with very nearly thousands of SPAM Filters currently in play. It doesn't catch all of them and we regularly update these filters to ensure that more are captured.
The trick is to develop filters that are able to distinguish between SPAM and Legit Postings. Sadly, and all to often, a Legit posting by one of you will trigger one of these many flags and your post will be marked as SPAM. In most cases, it will be stored away for later review by an Admin Officer. In other cases, it may be removed completely.
Where a comment has been automatically marked as SPAM, please DO NOT try posting again unless there is a really urgent requirement to get your post up. This only creates duplicate postings. In addition, and more importantly, with every comment flagged as SPAM, the system strengthens the SPAM filter that detected the posting. Duplicate postings that continue to be flagged as SPAM will only serve to increase the impact of the particular filter being flagged.
So, if you post a Topic, or a Comment, and are advised that the item has been flagged as SPAM, and that someone will review it, please rest assured that it will be reviewed in good time and if found to be legit (not SPAM), it will be published as intended.
Please do not attempt to repost items.
