Unable to post (Message seems to be spam)

Post by talletharm » Sat Nov 16, 2019 2:32 pm

I have been trying to post a question in the Linking section of the forum since yesterday, but as soon as I click 'Submit', it says:

Forbidden. Message seems to be spam.

The post is not that long, it just contains some error log information along with some explanation.

Why is this happening?

Hi,
Why is this happening?
It's hard to say. There wasn't any problem with your current post.

Try putting the error-log information inside code-tags: the icon that looks like

Code: Select all

</>
(which I've just put inside code-tags).

Regards,

David

Thanks for your reply, David

I tried doing that as well, it still says that it seems to be spam. It occasionally says: Forbidden. Dangerous Network.

Strange. Searching for "Forbidden. Dangerous Network" didn't find anything that's obviously relevant, apart perhaps from one suggestion: not to use a VPN. Do you, or do you use TOR? Does your IP address vary?

If it happens again, I suggest you pastebin the error-log information and post with a link to that.

I tried pastebin and it worked! Interestingly, even pastebin made me solve a captcha because it thought I was posting spam.
I do not use a VPN, and I use Brave as my web browser.

Thank you for your help

I'm glad it worked, but out of interest, let's see if I can post the pastebin contents:

Code: Select all

checking which wxWidgets toolkit was selected... configure: error:

If you can read this, it worked for me; so you can start feeling paranoid ;) .
