This is our most important anti-spam measure, so please do understand that it is necessary and will be enforced strictly. Our team will try to keep a vigilant eye for well-meaning, non-spam posts, and direct you to the proper thread, but it's entirely possible the post will be overlooked and deleted as spam (and your account may be deleted, as well). If this happens,
don't panic! Just try again.
