Ok, so I joined the site .. was a member for a while than bang! im banned for being a spammer...
Went through hours and hours of convo with the mods AND admin on here to sort it out. I was then
unbanned ONLY to be banned again a few hours later. This is beyond the joke now, I am once again
unbanned but my posts are being not accepted as im being moderated! WHY? I made a reply to a guy
wanting to make his phone a wifi hot spot - IT WAS A VALID REPLY!!!!
But why is it not accepted? I give up ... I may as well just quit and join another site which doesnt
harass new members accusing them first of being a spammer, then refusing to let there posts be shown.
This is just making me angry and im actually proud that the above post is WITHOUT any bad language!
Please try to sort this out .. Thanks

The reason your post was moderated was because of the system we use. It has a set of parameters and when they are triggered it will put your post as moderated. It is not just you on that ground.

Hope you're still lurking around (and not totally frightened off).
The automated system that ID'd you as a spammer goofed.
My hunch is, maybe it happened because your first post had a URL in it.
Unfortunately, that's behavior similar to what spammers do, and MMi is unfortunately overrun by them.
I'm sure it's not personal.
Mods are people. They're (mostly) decent people, and they don't ban out of spite.
Definitely, they don't ban for people genuinely trying to help.
But there are a whole lot of spammers who are not trying to help,
and are making things miserable for the rest of us.
Sometimes mods (and the moderation tools, and the forum scripts) mess up.
Usually the "mess up" means that..... another spammer gets through.
Sometimes someone like you gets hit by mistake.
thank you for trying
hope you're feeling better
