    My last two posts (without hysteria) are being “moderated”.
    Did I do something wrong ?

    Dare I say “me too” Bob

    Looks like there may be a problem or we have both done something bad?

    Hello Bob,

    There are a few different reasons that your account may have been thrown into moderation. Changing your name, posting too fast, and other causes. I’m not sure which cause it was, but you have been unmoderated now.

    Hello Dan,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Can you help provide more details as to what your activity was like when this happened?

    Hello Dan,

    After further investigation it appears your email was bouncing, which is a different issue than the other case. This is not a bug. It helps prevent us from getting marked as spammers by continuously emailing to email accounts that bounce.

    Well that probably explains why I’m also not getting notification of new threads any more. So the comcast server must think you guys are spammers. I don’t know what to do about that.

    Hello Dan,

    You might try adding bessie@creativecow.net to your contacts, and contacting them. The temporary block was lifted already. I submitted an additional request to not block our IP, but if you submit a request as well it could help. If the problem persists you might consider using a different mail service provider as comcast has had these issues before, while other mail service providers, such as Gmail, have never had such issues.

    Our outbound mail server ip is: 65.49.44.240
    Our domain is creativecow.net

    Here’s the bounce error:
    Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; delivery temporarily suspended: host
    mx2.comcast.net[76.96.40.147] refused to talk to me: 554
    imta30.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast 65.49.44.240 Comcast block for spam. Please see

    Have a great day!

    I believe this is due, as you mentioned in your email Craig, to posting identical posts. There is a monitoring system which throws users into moderation who post identical posts within a short time frame. This helps prevent our boards from being spammed. If this happens to you, do not fret, you will shortly be unmoderated, and a single version of your post will be approved.

    Abraham
