Anyone Else Having This Trouble?

So far, a post about Lent and how badly my day went yesterday has been denied three times. I do notice they're "upgrading" the blogs again, I see they've added a poll today. But my post has no bad language, (for once) it's not too short, it doesn't give away personal information, it doesn't fit any of the reasons they give for rejection. So I am wondering if anyone else is having this trouble today.

That is interesting. I've posted 3 times today without any problems.

Yep, ' few attempts at posting a long comment yielded a comment that said only, "AdultFriendFinder"...third attempt and all went well.

you're probably right about upgrades affecting posts,

I've been having a much more trouble than I would have expected in getting posts approved and on my blog (although, as a blogging newbie my opinion is void).

The reasons for refusal and kind of open-ended and nebulous, as I can't quite believe that AdultFriendFinder would really censor the word "fuck".

It's a tad tricky when there's no immediately apparent reason why the post contravened one rule or another. Seems to me that blog posts which get rejected should be rejected with a specific reason, or offending text highlighted. Then I'd be able to rant more specifically about the arbitrary nature of these rejections.

Consarn it.

My latest post was religiosly oriented too but somehow it made it through the system with relative ease.

Just keep making tiny alterations to it and trying again.

Maybe you need to make it even more obnoxious. Sometimes doing the reverse of the approach you've been taking does it.

Smack the monitor!
Curse into the air!
Then write a nassy letter to the "powers that be".
I always feel better afterwards.

Ash Wednesday ... yes, gave up sex again this year too. 40 more days of drought.

I actually sent a question in concerning this very thing. I wrote a blog the other day that they rejected. What I complained about was the lack of reasoning as to why. They give you some list of various reasons but don't actually tell you the reason your blog was denied. So you're basically suppose to just guess and keep sending it in till they decide to let it in. It's annoying. Tonight it took nearly 5hrs for a blog I wrote to get accepted. I kept waiting for it to come back.

I've had profiles get denied for no apparent reason. They basically told me that accidents happen because they have so many people checking so many profiles that they make mistakes. Yet they don't seem to have any problem letting the hundreds of fake profiles go through.

Caress, I noticed you have a few posts today. This is really bugging me, as it's not being rejected for any of the standard reasons. It mostly concerns a zealot on the bus yesterday and his misinterpretation of religious holidays.

campfire, great... This is really starting to frustrate me. I just wrote to customer service to ask about it.

Dysgyzed, if it's rejected one more time, I'm just going to do a cut and paste into a new post and see if it's accepted that way. If it's still rejected, I'm going to post it to 360 or LJ, if I can remember my password there.

Lianna, I'm on a laptop. I have no room for a desktop in this apartment. The case is already cracked enough, so I'm not going to drop it.

Transblucency, I've never been rejected for the word fuck, I have a post dedicated to it. I'm wondering if I hit submit at the moment they were doing upgrades and it's somehow corrupted on the server. I agree with you, we should be told why a post is rejected.

But everyone, what really pisses me off is, I take abuse from more than a few people for getting certain things past censors that other people can't seem to. Now, a perfectly benign posting is being rejected! I can feel their laughter already. *sigh*

Just noticed another little annoyance. Even though they didn't accept my plog until 5hrs after I wrote it, they considered it written 5hrs before therefore it never even made the list of newly created of most recent blogs. It was well off the first page before it even got accepted.

So far, they let my posts go through.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

KC_JJ, I'm sort of getting off on the three times denied bit. It was accepted the fourth time. I think it had to do with me hitting submit during upgrades.

Jeep, that happens a lot. Two people can write on the same subject and one will be denied and the other won't. And yeah. When they finally accept it, forget it making the most recent blogs post. It goes in with the original time stamp. So of course, no one knows it's there.

Sorceror, let's try it on your laptop first.

digdug, yeah, I know. I think I know the keyword that got it banned by the spider, too. But how can you talk about Jesus without mentioning the word Jew?

But, the post is up. For those of you who don't scroll down one post, the link is, So, How Was Your Day Yesterday.

>Transblucency, I've never been rejected for the word fuck, I have a post dedicated to it.

See, that's what I mean, though. Post rejection is almost entirely random. It was with rampant disbelief that I starred out the word "fuck" to get it accepted after two rejections. Once the post went through, I re-edited it to its anglo-saxon original sweary glory.

But still. I mean, really.

For fuck's sake, even.

I would have given up sex for Lent, but ya can't give up what ya don't have, so I gave up religion.

I ran into a similar problem when I tried to put a post through that had the words Koran and also Taliban contained within. Perhaps we have an inquisitorial force "helping" to shape our thoughts?

Remember, everyone fears the Spanish Inquisition.

You know, perhaps the way to defeat the Inquisition would be to post the piece as a comment.

saddle, I didn't feel the need to use a lot of bad language during it. It might have a blue word or two. But after I wrote to Customer Service, it suddenly appeared.

autumn, I'm NOT dropping the laptop. This thing can't take much more abuse.

Nick, they finally let it go through, a few hours after I wrote this post. Of course.

bigchok, half the time when I post comments, it takes five tries before the comment takes. It really pisses me off.

Trans, I really do think when the spider pics out banned words, a human should review the post and then decide. But should there even be any banned words on an adult site?

Sorceror, duct tape is a wonderful thing. So tell me, how is that LCD display now?

BigBoob, will you be taking it up again on Easter? Because that would be cheating.

Fallic, it is up. It's called, So, How Was Your Day Yesterday. I'm actually amazed it only took one letter to customer service to get it approved. I wonder if the person who screened it sat there saying, "this isn't about sex..."
