Not having any probs so far...

I know you said you don't have any plug-ins, but for others....

One thing that can affect ops is if you have a plug-in/add-on like "Redirect Remover". I recall that HWA (at least at one time) didn't like that one because it modifies the web address and gets rid of the prefix indicating the link was referred by HWA. (however, I change the profile so that HWA link refs are allowed thru cause I don't mind if someone knows I got to their site because of a link posted at HWA)

I believe it's mostly when it's missing (or has an incorrect) referrer. Can apply tos**t like this:

We've had this in place for quite some time.. There are two main reasons you can trigger this. One is if your browser is not sending "referrer" field (some ad blockers or firewalls do this) or if you copy/pasted "Reply" link. The other is your post includes words related to online sales of sexual enhancement drugs and similar things.

If you can't figure out why you are getting blocked email or private message me exact time when it happened and I'll tell you the reason.

I recall tripping this back when I was trying to post an article about someone who was ranting off about the sex scene in Mass Effect, and I guess the words "sex, lesbian, sexual, et. al." were referenced too many times that it tripped the spam catcher.

Great work, though, Vit. Security comes at the cost of convenience, and I think it's a worthwhile cost to keep HWA free of spam. :)
