Posts pop up randomly.
Hi guys, I was just reading this thread
And I have NEVER seen hitmany666's post on the thread until just now. I know that hitmany666 is elite88's other alias, but I have NEVER seen that post although I have frequented that thread many times. I even specifically remember that after Trinhity's orignal post, that elite88's post was directly under it. Now when I logged on today, there was another post after Trinhity's. It has happened to me 3 times before on these forums, rest assured, that I am NOT crazy...to my knowledge Has anyone else experienced this before?

might be due to the spam filter. i just installed a spam filter and questionable posts are queued up until we approve of them. when they do get approved, they appear in their original post time.

Not if you're an admin and can see the IP addresses

Speaking of that, I just noticed hitmany666's user name is no longer in the list!! Looks like the admin/mods stepped in!
The post of hitmany666 is also gone!

One thing i notice abt the new filter..
..kwun has added, to block spams, is that some new posts/threads can still "slip through the filters". I noticed this a few times, myself, where poster(s) will post something "related" to badminton, but in their post, they'll put very small ads/links to other websites. Even the thread header(s) could be "disguised" as non-spam.
Another scenario, which kwun mentioned a while back, which i've experienced also, is they might send us a PM and mention abt badminton related things. But then, they'll ask us if we want to join their business ventures etc.
Also, new posters might "slip through the filters" by posting badminton-related comments with their first couple of posts or so. But then will put on some ads/links by their 3rd or 4th or 5th posts, as to go unnoticed.
So, I guess we all just have to help kwun & the mods by identifying & telling them of these posts/threads. Use the triangle-shape-filled-with-an-exclamation-mark icon to tell kwun & mods.

yeah, it is just a simple filter afterall. it is not very intelligent, and it is always possible to get pass it. the good thing is that it does filter out 90% of the spams we have seen so far and that saves us a lot of work.
