Just posted a comment on RR.net and this is the message that came up:-

"Thank you for posting! Your post will not be visible until a moderator has approved it for posting."

What gives?

Huh? That was only for new members, the first 10 or so posts had to be checked and approved. If they do it for everyone that will kill it completely.

Simple enough: Toad ....

He knows who you are (from monitoring this site) and this is just his usual infantile way to 'punish' you (and the hell with your useful advice to others on rrs.net ?) !....

I wonder if they've decided that people using this forum can't be trusted to post on their forum and have taken action against usernames they recognise as being active on both?

They do get quite a (well deserved) kicking here :P

I tried posting and mine appeared immediately although as Gilbertd was banned for life I use a different username on there now. Maybe my idea of adding, "Also sometimes known as Gilbertd" to my signature isn't such a good idea.

However, now posts have been on there linking to threads here, our silly little, purile forum, as RRTH described it in an email to me, he might be realising that it hasn't gone away and is a threat to his empire.

I was actually trying to help Kapila, a fellow member, who is also on here as a matter of fact. There was nothing contentious about the post.

So are we the Judaean People's Front, or the People's Front of Judaea?

Got the same message about moderation being needed just now.

Being charitable it may be something to do with the "log in" and "remember me process" as I had to re-sign in the other day.

Seriously P-d off is what this Sussex country boy is. When stuff works why can't they just leave well alone.

But given that its supposed to be commercial now it could either be going tits-up or trying to pivot to a subscription service.

I think if it is anyone that is also on here, it's better to PM them rather than post on the forum. There was a thread a couple of weeks ago from a guy who had some roof rack mounts made and asked if people would be interested and quoted rough prices. He got a lifetime ban for advertsing without asking first. I only know about it as we were having an email exchange as he ordered a Direnza alloy radiator and had it sent to me so I could forward it on to him. Apparently he was on his second username anyway having been banned for no apparent reason in the past. So it isn't just us Brits, RRTH hates everyone.

Bugger, been sussed. Despite using a different user name, my posts are now being held too.

If Toad really is delaying/blocking good advice by you guys to other users, isn't it high time to report him (again) ?

PS: I have reams of stuff that has been posted over the years about him too......

Tried it before, didn't even get an acknowledgement. I don't think they care as long as the advertisers keep paying (although you'd think that by now anyone not running an ad blocker deserves to be bombarded with crap).

I pleaded ignorance and posted in the Community Help section last night explaining that my posts are being held until they've been checked and wondered if it was a software glitch. That also popped up a message saying it would be visible once it had been checked by a moderator. It still hasn't appeared, neither has a post I sent about 7pm last night and looking at the forum, neither has anything else since yesterday evening. Maybe we are being to hard on poor old RRTH and it's a software reset and everyone now needs posts to be held and checked so he's sitting there with hundreds of message to check.

I can confirm that the CIA have not contacted me to divulge information about the mysterious secret lives of folk who post on rrpub and rr.net ;-)

But given that its supposed to be commercial now it could either be going tits-up or trying to pivot to a subscription service.

You're welcome to pay a subscription if you like, mine's a pint thanks.

Not-logged-in users get Google ads, which at the current ad impression rate will pay for about four months of hosting every year, which is better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. Most ad impressions are to the Russian spammers that seem so adept at signing up.

I have just tried logging out and logging back in at RR.net. I still get the same message.
Kapila has pm'd me (at RR.net) and he says he is locked out as well. At least the pm's are getting through without being held.

I think they're having technical issues.

I can't even register a new account. it fails in the registration process. There's a message saying the submission couldn't be processed.

FWIW, I don't really think they (he?) were blocking us individually. It was mostly said tongue in cheek :P

I don't seem to have any issues posting over on RR.net at the moment.... I'm not on there much anyway, but replied to a couple of threads this afternoon and the replies have shown up straight away
