Are posts being blocked?

No, but your first two posts need to be acknowledged by a moderator, to prevent (severe) spam issues. It's anoying, but it greatly helps to reduce even worse anoyance. The board is spam-free lately.

In the past I had issues with fake users registering; once I deleted everyone with zero accepted posts which basically got rid of 80% of the 'users' (and their fake birthdays on the frontpage). To prevent future account deletetion, many 'lurkers' make a single post in this thread. You're safe now. :)

Spamming has started again. Somehow people get through the defenses. Might have something to do with those 10+ mails I got from phpBB crew about updating. :) I'll see what I can do, but once it gets fixed, I will delete users with zero accepted posts again, so if you want to keep lurking, make a random post to prevent this.
