    Default Unable to comment on new articles on main page.

    For a couple weeks I've been getting this:
    Your comment has been queued for moderation by site administrators and will be published after approval.
    when I post on news articles on the main site. What's up?

    Is it for every single post?

    I would assume AC has some type of software that has key word triggers, and, you are hitting those frequently.

    Yes every single post, and I don't normally post spammy stuff so I'm not sure what key-words I might be triggering.

    Hmm, well, if it's every post, then, I'm not really sure. That's all I could think of. Hopefully someone else will come along and have some idea.

    Yes it is. I just posted a reply on Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE coming to Sprint on Sept. 16 | Android Central to test it and it is queued for moderation.

    Maybe they do that with every post now to prevent spam, trolling, etc

    We use an API into a 3rd party Spam filtering service. I'm not sure what triggered your post to moderation (nothing in it that looks off to me), but I approved your post and believe you should be good moving forward. If not, let me know.

    Not sure if what is happening to me is related but I can log into the forums but I can't log on the homepage to comment on articles.

    I've been getting blocked as well, the latest being now in this thread: Galaxy S2 coming fashionably late to Virgin Mobile | Android Central

    My comment was this: "Is there any way to configure/flash/voodoo/transfer a Sprint GS2 for use with Virgin Mobile? I'm getting a Nexus 4 and my g/f has a crappy little Optimus V phone and it'd be great to give her my old GS2 to use with her account. Since it's still Sprint's network, you'd think it'd be nothing to do, but I'm sure there's some device ID hoodoo that would prevent the obvious from occurring."

    I've tried logging out and back in, but something is blocking me on article comments.

    I was able to comment again for about a week, just got denied again.

    For some reason, I was able to post on my work computer this morning; the trouble I was having was at home. Perhaps I need to clear cookies.

    I'm still unable to post on site posts from home. Cleaned all AC cookies from Firefox 16 and tried IE9 and both do the same thing: You submit the post and it takes a longer-than-usual period of time and then says it's been queued for moderation. Is there something on my account that has me flagged only there?

    This is still happening? I posted from work earlier today, but now at home my comments require moderation. I'm not under any conduct strikes that I'm aware of, so what's the deal? Is my IP being flagged and, if so, why?

    Dirk,

    We may need to adjust the threshold on the comment spam service we're using. Shoot me an email at james AT mobilenations.com and we'll work this out with the tech team.

    Took a quick look through the mod queue and don't see any posts from you in there. Chances are any posts that you had go into moderation have been approved.

    I have had this problem on this site forever -- and here I thought it was just me. I don't comment much, but every single comment I try to post gets queued for moderation after an absurdly long time loading the page. I hardly even try to comment anymore thanks to it. Any help would be much appreciated -- I don't believe I've ever broken any rules or even remotely come close to behaving like a nugget!

    In the blogs or forums?

    Blogs. I can post fine in the forums. It's rather frustrating to see some pretty vulgar comments on articles on the main page when every single non-vulgar comment I attempt to make gets queued for moderation. Is there some block on my account?

    Thanks. I know we've put a number of spam prevention tools in place over the past few months, I'll make sure our tech team takes a look. I'll pass along your usernames as well (if that's OK) so they can check to see what's going on!

    Should be all good now. Let me know if you experience any further issues on this one.
