What is the criteria one must meet for their posts in this forum to first be reviewed and then approved before being posted?

I am no longer able to post in the Thread I started titled "Misleading Reviews against my Book." What gives? I was not rude or spiteful to anyone.

Hi Nathan,

Do you mean that your posts go to moderation? That happens to all of us from time to time if we use one of the many bizarre words that A*zon has on it's hit list. They're usually words that the sp*mmers use, so at least they're trying to do something to reduce the number that get through. It's annoying though, as sometimes they show up after a while and sometimes they never do.

I believe Joseph has quite a long list of those words and many are quite innocuous. (That's why you often see people using random asterisks and the like in the middle of different words.)

It's definitely nothing personal against you, either from A*zon or the community.

Hope that helps. J

Obviously, you can if you want, but, really, what else needs to be said about your silly crackpot book that hasn't already been said? Or are you still wanting to pick fights with people who don't share your fantasies?

This post is a fine example of why posts are moderated!

There are people trying to get experience in publishing, who seem to have little knowledge of the dangers of the Internet.
I saw one yesterday, that contained data that should not have been published in a public forum.

It's always better to base posts on knowledge rather than ignorance.

As to things that don't belong in a public forum, KDP suggest in its guidelines that forum members please refrain from posting e-mail addresses. Prudent members comply with the reasonable request.
