Hi from AZ. . . you didn't refer to the muffler as a 'silencer' did you ? Craig

Hmmmm

Is a muffler the same as a silencer?

I think, bkahler, you should pm one of the mods on duty who appear at the bottom of the Portal page....and ask them.

If there is a problem, they will tell you. That is the most sensible and logical thing to do, in my opinion.

If it is just a glitch in your computer giving you that message, then you will know.

One of the rules here is to not openly criticize the actions of the mods, so be careful out there.

Kinda weird that thanking someone for their recommendation as to what muffler to buy would trigger a moderator approval flag.
Yes it is weird that this would trigger a hold on your post.

We are reviewing this and will let you know what gives. As an aside, you are not likely to garner attention from the Staff lamenting about an issue in an open thread, you'll have better success using the "Contact Us" button located on the bottom of the page, or PM'ing a moderator.

Kevin, I don't believe I was lamenting about anything. Many forums moderate new users but after x number of posts they are released. Also most forums I am on don't have processes running in the background monitoring posts for some unacceptable words or statements. So when I commented "after 4000 posts that it wouldn't be necessary" was based on previous experience with other forums, nothing more.

I just checked the Contact Us button at the bottom and all it did was take me to the Portal. The last time I needed moderator assistance I posted in this forum and help arrived.

Maggie, to the best of my knowledge I have not openly criticized anyone on Airforums. Nor do I plan to do so now or in the future

I've read that quite a few internet forums are being targeted by cyber attacks. I guess the "bad guys" sign up and then, try to harvest information. It would be nice though, that if a post needs to be modified / deleted, the original poster was advised so that legitimate folks could learn if they'd made a mistake. I imagine that moderating a forum is a lot of work and, do appreciate the efforts by the moderators to keep the forums up, running and safe.

I wasn't suggesting that you did or would, it was just an open caution.

The mods names are in bold at the bottom of the Portal Page....click on a name, and send them a pm.

I believe I see what happened, not sure of the cause at this point, but try a test posting now with a another link to amazon, or the sales website of your choice.

Kevin, the post that got flagged didn't have a link. However one of my slightly earlier posts had this link to Amazon for the muffler.

The forum went through a recent upgrade and perhaps a google search or something like it was added. The kind of sniffer that looks for key words or text strings and presents those posts to the moderators for a quick look-see.

I have a lot of posts, and I've had a few deleted by the moderators

.... and in every case the original posting was written when I had at least a MILD case of cranial-rectal inversion. So they make me look like a kinder, gentler, more prudent and wiser person by editing or deleting the occasional off the cuff remark or post that MIGHT have been inspired by a bit too much hard cider. If you were moderated and passed, you are a better man than I Gunga Din.

Yes the linked post is the one I saw. Were you
able to post this one without any issues?

Yes, this one posted just fine.

I'm going to send this message and then send another one with the text I was trying to send in my original post. I'll post again after that if the "bad text" doesn't show up.
