Why am I kicked out of the Accountants Community? Every comment I may make is immediately deleted. I do not think I have done anything wrong.

I value this community and cannot participate. Tell me why.

We've made some changes so that the system should not be automatically deleting your comments now. We are investigating why this happened, but you should be able to use the community as intended now

@Intuit Austin  - Boris brought cupcakes this morning but I think they are gone now.  You should have gotten here earlier.

@IRonMaN that is tragic. I was with him in person and he didn't offer me any. I will have to bring this up with him...

Thanks @Intuit Austin

I know there are different "titles" available for users (AllStar, Moderator, Employee).  What do you think about using something like "Verified" and then you could assign that to folks we know are human, they could be exempted from the automatic spam filter, and we could still keep the Mumbai Dancing Girls out.

@rbynaker That's an interesting idea! I'll talk to team on Monday and see if there's anything we can do to combat issues like that going forward. We don't want to block out REAL comments and questions, but like you said, we want to keep inappropriate and unnecessary spam out.

"That's an interesting idea! I'll talk to team on Monday and see if there's anything we can do to combat issues like that going forward"

But if you could do that, wouldn't that mean you could keep the Turdotaxers and other DIYers out of this place? :smirk:

Thanks.  If this were the first time, I'd probably say, "Meh, it happens".  But there have been a lot of folks complaining lately about being blocked who are really just trying to provide more info about their question/issue.  I can try to remember to tag you if I see them.

@IRonMaN  Of course they can.  They choose not to.

The system has a goofy anti-spam feature that sometimes causes issues for folks if they post a few times in a limited time period.
