    You may be too young to recognize this guy. He is "Iron Wart Cody." He became famous in the 1970s for his commercials about holistic wart removal techniques. Needless to say, the product was not 100% effective.

    Do you mean "Wise Asses"? Go ahead and say it. You know you were thinking it.

    Well I usually put on a few pounds over the holidays but otherwise not so bad.

    Why do you ask? Are you prone to posting things that need to be moderated?

    Sometimes it is, but then, other times it definitely is not. You can be sure that if it is heavily moderated today, tomorrow it will be a free for all.

    Simply curious. I tried to post something. Didn't work. Figured it was moderated, maybe based upon the tone in this thread?

    The straight answer is: No, the moderation is very light here, although extreme behaviors will not be tolerated, etc. The rules, and they are not extensive, are on stickies in the Town Hall forum.

    Welcome here. Please stop by the Ellis Island forum and introduce yourself.

    Oh, btw, watch out for Y-ohio; he probably shouldn't be trusted.

    To the extent this is true (and I don't think it is) I think you have it backwards. Sometimes there is a free for all and it demands some moderation. But, either way is about the same, I suppose.

    If your post never appeared at all it may be a case of user error because even the most offensive of posts will appear for at least a short while. It will disappear only when a moderator reads it and decides to step in and that happens rarely.

    My original post was moderated. It has appeared. I deleted it and have added another in it's place. Will it need to be moderated?

    Yes. We are looking at it. It might be due to your IP. I approved both of your posts.

    Typically they would not be moderated.

    Our SPAM filter usually picks up on really boring, academic type posts. So if you want to make it through that you need to liven it up a little.

    I'm often surprised to click on a thread and then discover that I have posted things that I don't remember ever saying. And then I think, well, I must have thought that comment was amusing or insightful at the time but it hasn't aged well.

    Come to think of it, I'll probably click on this thread again a few months or years from now, read this comment, think the same thing again, and then not be able to decide if it turned out I was right or wrong.

    The only real moderation (other than self-moderating "cut it out" stuff) seems to be associated with doxxing. Don't do that. Also, probably not a good idea to make realistic threats or be Johnny Lingo. Otherwise, shoot. But be prepared to be shot back at if you don't say nice things.

    I hope you're not trying to start a free for all with this post. If so, heads will roll!

    It's probably just the internet running out of space. Not a big deal.

    I tend to be pretty dull, so in order to avoid moderation, I'll sometimes randomly include the term "motherfucker" in my posts and that tends to make it past the moderators. The moderators can be real assholes at times.

    It looks like it might be a problem with your links in your footnotes. As a general rule around here we do not cite sources. Ever. Only bald assertions are allowed. So try to post without those links and see if ti helps.
