Tractor Gent June 26, 2021 at 9:31 am Spam trap rules these days are so horribly complex it’s impossible to determine what would get caught. That’s part of the plan of course – if the rules were known they could be gamed. Grikath June 26, 2021 at 3:35 pm Spam trap doesn’t seem to like properly formatted hyperlinks, (the [a href =”hyperlink”] text [/a] type ), and it doesn’t like youtube. A youtube link in proper tags, or multiple youtube links as text ( or multiple links altogether) tend to be sent to the Basket Case folder. Any site with an agressive/interruptive Privacy landing page, really. At least that’s what I’ve noticed in the past months. Ecks’ post would have two hard redirects ( plus gods-know-what-else ) with those youtube links.. A strict spam filter without an exception for youtube would have sent them straight to the holding pen. just my two eurocents. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
