    Default My replies have disappeared

    Some of the replies I have posted disappear after a few minutes. I'd like to understand why. If it is taken off for any "offense" I'd like to learn about it so I can correct the way I reply. Help? I'm relatively new to this forum and as such, any suggestions/feedback would be helpful.

    Two messages went into moderation, which means that they don't appear on the forum until they been approved. This is because they contained links. It happens with all new members until they have posted 10 times, after which posts with links will appear without having to be approved. This is to stop spammers and advertisers coming in and hitting us with lots of links. The posts are now visible. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it's part of the endless war against spam.

    Did it have a link in it? If you read the message above, messages with links will not be displayed until someone has posted 10 times. Now you can post links.
