I tried to post a message to the PT board in the "What happens when the facts are stated" thread and it was blocked. An IM came back stating it was being witheld becuase it was "malcious" and immediately I tried to email the moderators and they have not replied. Is this some technical problem on your end?

If it is not a technical problem for either of us, and this post really was censored, I would like to know how it violated board policies. Would someone knowledgeable of these issues please respond.

Thank You,

The Ghost of Paley

That sucks, Paley.  While you're waiting for the moderators to fix the problem perhaps you can flush out your theory and address some of the questions I've posted about it.

It is possible that it was caused by a few word choices.
I think that PT employs a filter so as that young children read it without being subjected to seeing abusive language.

PT employs some automated routines to protect against spamming and improper commenting. Users may receive notice that includes the word "malicious" for the following reason:

* Attempting to enter a comment within a minimum timeout period from their last comment (prevents 'flooding'). This initiates an automatic IP ban.

This is a very common automatic option for a great many discussion board systems.

Thanks for the comment. By the way, I submitted a new comment, so the original post isn't needed any more.
