In my profile said that I never made any kind of review ?! OK, then I try to make another one and I get an error: “ERROR: Duplicate topic detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!” so I cannot post review and site said that I did it already which is correct but apparently is not viewable, please correct that issue, thanks !

    Your review was removed because you inserted a link to that review. That was one of… twenty that did that that day.

    Don’t do that. That’s not what the reviews are for and users who do that are frequently spamming. If you want to leave a review then then limit it to your experience. If you want to post your link there then yes, that will be removed.

    I am sorry because I did not know that is forbidden to support with links wordpress and supporting plug in with ling on my site which is running on wordpress and using plug in for which I want to make review. I make account on wordpresss just because that review about brilliant plug in. Nevertheless I am familiar with worpress at least 10 years… so if you do not allow me to repost review I have no choice then delete this account, make new one and post review again, in any case I would not post any kind of links.
    Thank you for answering.

    so if you do not allow me to repost review I have no choice then delete this account, make new one and post review again, in any case I would not post any kind of links.

    Ha.

    Let’s start over again.

    1. You left a review with a link. You were one of many that did that, and most of the times that’s from spammers. Your review was archived for that reason.
    2. Most accounts that do that are spammers and don’t come back. You’re not a spammer and here we are.
    3. This was explained to you just now in this topic. It happens.
    4. You replied that if you can’t leave that review then you’ll just create a new account to leave a review.
    5. The above point? I have a thing about fake accounts and you just replied to me with a threat to create one to get around the link admonition.

    So. Let’s start over. I have un-archived your review. Your account will remain on moderation watch for the time being because a) links and b) saying you’ll create multiple accounts to get around a restriction.

    https://wordpress.org/support/guidelines/#being-mod-watched-or-banned

    Please do not put links in reviews. Even more so, don’t create more accounts. That will lead to your reviews being archived and your accounts being banned from here.

    OK, I understand you clearly. I am IT pro since 1994. so I was and I am in many communities being Administrator, moderator, I am still on some of those. My goal was to support that awesome plug in, nothing else. As I can see my review shows up without link and that is OK, thank you for helping me. You do not need to watch me, as I said, I achieve what I want, but if you want to look after me fell free to do so. 🙂

    And BTW I did not say that I would in possible new review post link and try to break rules, I wrote “…in any case I would not post any kind of links.”

    Is not so hard to put some code which will filter out links from posts and not allow posting links in posts instead moderate it ? In such a case I have been informed that I cannot post link and I will remove it and post it, just my 2 c. Also I am aware that wordpress have huge auditorium so you have to deal with all kind of threats on daily bases. Anyway, I am pleased and thankful for what you did. Have nice day ! 🙂
