I fell victim to the spam BOT yesterday, couldn't see the posts I made, it would show when I hit the reply button, and my name would also show as the last poster.
However, if I opened the thread, the post wouldn't be visible. And if I checked my last posts via my profile, I would again see it.
How do members contact a Moderator for a particular section? You can't PM them, and bar the "report to a moderator" function (which you can't use for your own posts) there's no way of getting through. Is there a section whereby Moderators have contact details? I'm fully aware most people (myself included) don't like leaving personal email details in their profiles.
It would help if Moderators though did have some form of contact by members!
