Cal (or whomever reviews link content),

When a post goes into review limbo do you provide any feedback to the poster regarding why if it never sees the light of day? I submitted one last night (Dr. Mannig ranting about Obama) and later wondered if it might be found to dicey to survive. However, since I'm not sure where the line is and personally don't think this crossed it I won't be surprised if it doesn't appear. Which brings me back to the point of this, " Is that how we find out if something doesn't pass muster?".

There Is No Line

I pass everything through that isn't spam. The service doesn't measure the 'dicey-ness' of a post - it just quantifies the probability that a post is spam. Your post was pretty short and contained a link to a random website and thus got flagged. It is, unfortunately, difficult to determine the 'spaminess' of short posts - there's simply not a lot of data to work with.

Content moderation is at the discretion of Cal, and is something that has to be done manually.

A lot of posters here have enjoyed Tin Can's links on a regular basis. Is there a way to just pass through posts from bloggers that have been around for a while and have proved their worth?

You make it sound like thousands of spam posts are getting caught. Maybe Cal could give you a list of user names that have been around longer than a year and posts regularly that you would have authorization to pass through.

Not trying to be a pest, but I kind of miss Tin Can's links.

Thanks jevank

But I'm not sure I would trust me with a free pass.
