Score 1


I signed up to this ifixit website and I am immediately leaving. The iRobot is absolute TRASH. I just spent 30minutes typing up a very nice and informative reply to someones computer problem and it was IMMEDIATELY deleted with -100 by the bot.... WHY DID I WASTE MY TIME HELPING?

&&^&^$^ robots ruining and $@$*!&%& up the internet. I'm not wasting my time helping people for some stupid robot to delete my $@$* immediately. Clearly ifixit has a problem it can't handle. For a tech website, that's pretty embarrassing. I'll be going for and providing tech help somewhere else that has experts and a WORKING website. You know ,the BASICS.

Hi @jonnycat ,

The iRobot gets over zealous sometimes and thinks that the question is spam

e.g. the model number may be misinterpreted as a phone number or something else instead of a model number.

Next time try using "model # " or similar in front of the numbers just to denote what they mean.

I've reopened your questions, you will notice that they are marked as duplicate.

Fix the &&^&^$^ robot. I hate your website. It deleted my very first post I spent a ton of time helping someone on.... Only to have it deleted immediately. BROKEN WEBSITE if you can't even make a simple &&^&^$^ post about computers.

Hey there everyone,

For some background, the spam filter automatically marks things as spam based off of the content we manually marked as spam.

When the spam filter sees a heuristic, such as a model number, or a certain combo of words, it may mark it as spam when it is not.

The model is actively being trained it by every manual moderation fix. For example, what @jayeff did by reopening the question was teach the model it made a mistake.

Sorry the spam filtering is messing up for you. If you see more of these, please reach out. We do want to ensure the spam filter’s model doesn’t misbehave.
