My post got ate and was not spam RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have no idea why my post got marked as spam, but the problem is even worse because it got eaten. It is gone from everywhere. Except fortunately I composed it outside of the forum software so I still have most of it. I think there should be a way to retain a post when it is suspected to be spam, especially since it can easily be a mistake.

    What am I supposed to say here? There should be some explanation to what to say. We are told to post here but there are no other instructions.

    I see that in previous posts about spam the user is new and needs to be verified. I am not new.

  • What thread was it in? You may be able to use /?outputas=xml to see why deleted? Also if it rejects before post then I guess there would be no record.

  • I'd send an email with details to fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com and they should be able to restore it for you.

  • Thank you, Dave. I have already posted two of the three pieces, so I know that the part it is complaining about is somewhere in four links I have to MSDN and Microsoft Documentation. I can't post that content here because it gets rejected as spam too. So if they have the content available to them then they can look at it but just in case I will email the part that is causing the problem. I think I will try posting the links here with just the URLs, not the text portion of the link.

  • Okay, go to Introduction to Building Windows Communication Foundation Services. Look at the first sentence of "The ABC of Windows Communication Foundation"; it says:

    "ABC" is the WCF something.

    Except the something is the word that caused the post to be flagged as spam. My previous post has all the text from the portion that caused the problem except that part with that word.

  • The other thread is Interface As return type in C#. In it CoolDadTx says stuff about ABC but does not explain what ABC is. Searching MSDN does not help; everything in MSDN and Microsoft Documentation seems irrelevant.

    Since this question asks about the post being eaten I will try your suggestions about what to do about that.

  • You can send fissues a link to this thread as well so they can see the issue.

    I tried that but I obviously don't understand. I tried appending that to the end of the address in the address bar and nothing changed so obviously I need to do something different.

  • Yea, they will sort it. An odd one to key the spam filter.

  • As for whether the posts are still in the thread, there are two lines that say "Deleted" that are in the location the posts would be (I assume).

    In the URL get rid of everything to the right of the message ID (a262eb07-b9b8-4cba-ae4e-6c8113d0fbb6) then add /?outputas=xml

    Yes that worked. I was able to see the deleted posts. They both have the following added just before the signature:

    <input id='spamFlag' type='hidden' />
