    Mods/Admins/Whom it May Concern,

    The 5 post spam filter is reasonable, and I've used similar methods myself when I have administered forums...

    The program seems to detect spam or smilies or links where none exist. Twice now I've been blocked from posting by this message. I looked for the offending text, and could not see anything that could even be mistaken as a smilie or a link.

    I wonder if you could adjust this as it may discourage new members from posting or getting involved in discusssion.

    Just a thought. I'd post a smiley here to show my attitude, but.....

    The use of a smiley under 5 posts will, be picked up as it's an image.
    We tried to make it as easy as possible with easy instructions for new members, say 'Hi' Hello' 5 times and then you're clear.
    We get zero spam so it works in that way, maybe the odd poster finds it difficult and may end up being discouraged from posting but they only need to ask and we will help while they are under 5 posts.
