Approval of posts (down to HTML syntax?)

In trying to add some style to an image (to add a border) by guessing the simple HTML syntax, I got a message informing me that my comment would be posted once approved.

Is this due to the spam filters implemented, or is it down to the number of edits I made, or the specific syntax I tried to add?

For reference, the code I tried to add which is probably wrong:

Does anyone know if I can add a border, and if so, what the correct syntax is?

Just had another post do the same thing. Must be a post and edit frequency thing to try and stop spammers.

I often edit posts quite a bit within the first few minutes once posted. I should use the preview button more, but the formatting is not always the same on the preview as the actual post.

It’s the spam filters, which means I don’t know exactly what caused them to think you were fishy. They don’t share their formulae for obvious reasons :slight_smile:

I’ve marked your posts as not spam now and marked you as a legitimate user, so you shouldn’t have this problem again.
