To explain: just looking at what happens to links when a post is moved. This was where it was moved "to". The link to the previous location then went to the top of the old topic. But then I am, as often confessed, a consistent liar.

Good catch, dbiel.

10 quotes per post is the curent setting.
I 'fixed' the original problem post by converting a couple 'quote' tags to 'code' statements.

Background: FireFox (1.0.x) tended to blow up at around 12 to 14 embedded quotes. Opera tended to blow up at something around 9 to 12 embedded quotes. The limit setting at 10 embedded quotes per post has been the Default and recommended setting since version 2.0.1 or so .... making that a couple of years now ....

...edit, it is suprising how may views this little test topic has had.
Test topics appear to be treated pretty much like "How to use" pages. Just taking the "top" pages of various forums currently (by linear correlation) -

TEST Views 1272 + 151 per reply
HOW TO USE - Forum, Reporting Views 1735 + 374 per reply

Contrast with

HELP - Reporting, BL, Mail, Mailhosts Views 72 + 33 per reply
LOUNGE Views 25 per reply

Fairly obviously the length of time any given topic spends on the forum's "front page" has a lot to do with it.

(Some correlations are "weak" - they do not account for much of the variance - but all are assured by high confidence levels - the least of which indicates 1/34,543 probability of chance attribution).

Test of APEWS multi-moderation option

There is no connection between SpamCop.net and APEWS. However, because the APEWS FAQ was apparently misunderstood, the following data is provided;
______________________________________________________________________________
Considering the current behavior and management of the APEWS blacklist, we can only agree with the advice given at Al Iverson's DNS RESOURCE -
QUOTE(DNS RESOURCE)
If you are listed on the APEWS blacklist, as confirmed by checking their website, here's how I would recommend that you handle the situation. (Who the heck am I?)

Note: This isn't guidance on how to avoid a blacklisting or sidestep anti-spam groups. If you have a spam issue, fix it. Don't spam, ever, for any reason. This is information is regarding how to address an issue with a blacklist that is very aggressive at listing non-abusing IP addresses and networks, with no published, attainable path to resolution.

Exactly right, I didn't anticipate a response - just seemed to have some interesting possibilities if left. Or it might be desirable to change the behavior. Nothing worth any sort of priority of itself. But raised partly because such things sometimes lead elsewhere, to more worthy things.

The domain mentioned belongs to LogMeIn and is intended for legitimate remote support use. Fraudulent or illegal use is a direct violation or our terms. It is something we take very seriously, act on immediately, and investigate thoroughly, sometimes in assistance of law enforcement.
Farelf
Looks like someone is now blocking connection to www.support.me from my location/provider (still up and running via proxies/watchmouse.com etc. also pings work from my PC) - somewhat misguided since it is a legitimate service, simply abused. Ah well, my favourite "Windows Support Center" still gave me a six-digit code to type in which I promptly e-mailed to scamreport[at]logmein.com biggrin.gif

Anyone know the failure message if an incorrect code is entered there? Next time I might try stringing the scammers along using that, to see how many codes they will give me to report. Better in bulk, eh?

Oh, www.support.me wasn't blocked by the way - just the "Windows Support Centre" favourite method of using the run box to access the internet. All sorts of other URL connects, except through a browser, affected as well (links from dialog boxes, tcpIQ dictionary consultations, attachments to Yahoo7 webmail compositions, etc. all suddenly not working). But, it turns out, following some update of something, one now needs to specify a default browser. Hitherto those connections initiated from outside a browser picked up IE if no default was set. That stopped following M$ apparently taking a rare step back from imposing itself. Once a default browser is specified, it all works again.

JIC others with multiple browsers experiencing the same (it was fair getting up my left nostril, I can tell you, so many possibilities to explore, so few clues). Microsoft update still opens via IE, if installed, regardless of the default (that's a good thing in my case). They haven't retreated all the way biggrin.gif
