I seems like posting comments with links are being rejected with increasing regularity.

Has something changed in CFI policy?

Isn’t sharing interesting information part of the fun of this kind of forum?

Or do we have quotas and I’ve exceeded mine   red face

No clue, nothing I know has changed but it’s possible that the tech folks have done some background tweaking. When linking, if you have problems use a link shortener like bit.ly to get a new link, that may get around the spam filter.

If you are having long term, unfixable problems let me know and I can see if there is something that can be done.

I’ve found that including Http: seems to trigger a rejection and that if you remove it from the link it will go through.
