Reasons for post removal ?

I posted in Sandwell Valley this lunch time; a bit of text and some photos.

My post was then flagged as spam or abusive !!!

I filled in the respoince for and have not heard back in the past seven hours.

I've reread the forum rules and cannot see how I might of breached them.

 As a paid up member of the RSPB, and having recently donated equipment to Sandwell Vally,  I am currently quite dissapointed.

  • Hi Trugga has your post already been deleted?
    I've been on and off most of the day and not seen a post from you.

  • As far as I can tell nothing has been posted in that group for over a year.
    community.rspb.org.uk/.../sandwell-valley
    It would be unusual for them to delete a post without someone seeing it before they could do it.

  • Sandwell Valley is not a very busy group, and I did not that it has been just over a year since my last post (it's been a very busy year, personally).

    As I am a regular poster there, that's why I am confused/dissapointed.

  • Posts do get flagged occasionally accidentally. A slipped/missed tap or click and it's into a moderator queue. Should be re-instated when a mod gets to it

  • This was the email message I received:

  • I wonder if they have set up an automated system now to hide posts that are flagged until someone can moderate it, if so I think they should set it that it would need a couple of people to flag a post before it gets hidden, it could be open to abuse or people accidentally flagging a post.
    Hope you get it sorted quickly pal.
