Why was my post marked as spam?

    Question

  • I just tried to post the message below into the Hyper-V forum, and it was marked as Spam. The forum told me to post the message here if I feel it was marked as spam in error (it was), but it won't let me post it here either!  These forums are so frustrating.  So now what Microsoft?

  • We cannot tell, only a moderator in that forum can see the reasons for deleted posts. Most likely something triggered a spam filter. I'd send an email to fissue [at] microsoft [dot] com and they can investigate and or restore it.

  • I found your deleted post in this forum and saw that it was deleted by the spam filter. I see nothing wrong with the post. I can only guess why it was flagged. I just removed the abusive flag and undeleted it.

    I would send an email to fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com, as Dave suggested, with a link to the undeleted post, and a link to the forum where you posted the question. I am not a moderator there.

    Edit: Is this the forum where you posted?

    Perhaps I can move the post I undeleted to where it belongs. Or you can wait for the forum admins, or a moderator, to restore your original post. I assume the spam filter won't delete a post I restored, but I cannot be sure (will be interesting to find out).
