Description

I'm attempting to submit a defect report and running into this notice every time:

This request was denied because it was considered spam or your IP adress is temporarily blocked.

I don't know of any reason why I should be blocked; this is my first Redmine.org ticket and I have no reason to suspect that my company's wifi IP is blocked. I'd like to get this resolved as quickly as possible so I can submit my real issue, please.

Thanks, it was the output of my cURL attempt that was flagging me. Obscured that a bit and it went through.

Or, if you need to show a lot of sample URLs, you can try to use

http://www.redmine.org/xxx

instead of
http://www.example.com/xxx

;)

If there are parentheses in your text you are getting:
This request was denied because it was considered spam or your IP adress is temporarily blocked.

Getting same error, tried replacing all e-mail addresses (maybe this caused the block on the first time) and all parenthesis.

Same error. Preview function is a easy way to see if it will give you this error since it will NOT generate a preview.
Tried many different things.
Eventually worked when I cut down on my total characters.
cutting down total characters in several different ways solved the issue, whether it was just links, just pre-formatted text, or just text in general.
My final resolution was to cut out a bunch of text in my bulleted list and that allowed me to preview and then post.
