You have to remember that a disability forum like this where anyone can join and make comments is going to be a big target for 'disability bashing' and 'benefit bashing' trolls.
That will be why the automatic moderation filters are set so high, so you don't have to see any of this crap.
There was recently a thread on here that give a link to a BBC story about mobility cars being returned.
The benefit basher comments made about that story on the BBC website shows what narrow minded little jerks some of them can be.
By having a firly strict moderation police these nasty comments don't appear here, any that do get through get taken down fast.
Yes it means that genuine posts get caught up, but it's the price we pay for the moderation keeping the trolls away.
I'd rather have some of my posts moderated than have to read some of the comments the trolls make.
Admittedly though it would be better if they recruited a team of mods who worked from home, and not just during office hours.
How big a problem is spamming and trolling?
Just look at the statistics on the forum home page for the automatic moderation tool-
Then compare that to the fact that there are currently 18,097 registered members.
So over 8 times more spammers have tried to register than genuine members.
