Think before you submit, why your post may not pass muster.

I have helped run a public discussion forum before so I have a little experience with deleting posts, and know it can really honk some people off.

I have seen many people, including myself, complain about posts not making it on the site and not knowing why.

I have figgured out a couple reasons and wanted to share them. I doubt AdultFriendFinder will post a specific list of do's and don'ts because that would at the same time let creative bloggers know how htey might get around the filters and still say exactly what they wanted.

Rule #1 that seems pretty obvious. If you want to tell a story about a sexual encounter where you or someone else was under say 18 years of age - DON'T list the age. I had a fellow blogger on here that had submitted a post where she discussed losing her virginity. The post sat for over 12 hours and was not showing up. I suggested deleting the exact age she was and within an hour it showed up.

Rule #2 Don't post detailed discussions that include too much talk or naming of instant messaging programs. I watched a comment of mine dissapear two times and finally removed 3 letters (the name of a popular IM program) and replced them with XXX. Thats all it took to get the post accepted.

There is a lot of common sense, what makes it funny here is that this is a site that lets a TON of stuff that would not be allowed elsewhere slide through without any problems at all

happy blogging!!!
