    I am definitely not a spammer. Last year I wrote an enormous review and list of items I had playing MM6 and it did not post and I was not able to post on any tavern again at all. So I left! What are limitations to posting. so I Do not do it again?

These boards use two main stategies to block spammers....

    One is a list of forbidden words (or character combinations). That's what tripped you up. One of the brands of sneakers/trainers that spammers often promote is Hermes, so we'd blocked that term. I've taken it off the forbidden list. The spammers have been less active recently, so we'll see if they start using it again.

    The other strategy is IP blocking, but we only invoke that for repeat offenders.

    There is a character limit on messages, but we have that set obscenely high. There's also a time limit between posts from the same IP, but I forget where we have that set.

    We're always sorry when someone gets inadvertently banned, but we either have to take that chance or make folks set up user accounts. Shoot me an email if it happens again.
