  • Wikipedia links need moderator attention?

    I've posted to help http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...or-Myah-OS-3-0 (a download link) and it's getting monitored, meanwhile spammers get to post...:

    I also posted to http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...cal-linux-user with 2 Wikipedia links, why do those need monitoring??


    Fix your anti-spam system, it's obivously fighting the wrong people.

    This thread was also under "monitoring", therefore I am now unable to fix typos, because I didn't have the time to wait for a moderator to approve it.

      IIRC this is post count dependent. So as soon as you have 10 (was it 10? something like that) posts, you can post links without 'monitoring'.

      You obviously can do what the spammers do ;-)
      1. Post without links or images
      2. Immediately edit post to add links / images
      -> no 'monitoring'

        Haha then what's the point of post monitoring, if one is able to circumvent it?
        Thanks for the technique , I'll be using that until I have sufficient posts.
