Hi, using 2.4.6 essentially out of the box and I go to post the following text in a comment from the post's entry in the backoffice:
Hi Steve! Yes, well I'd spin it back at you and say that the sub-standard state of voting technology effectively killed off remote early voting... however, I do think it's important to balance the risks involved and using DRE+VVPAT for early voting seems manageable.
As for national stats of residual votes: I'm assuming you want residual votes for the Presidential contest on the ballot. You can take Michael McDonald's turnout stats here (<a href="http://elections.gmu.edu/Turnout_2008G.html">http://elections.gmu.edu/Turnout_2008G.html</a> ) and subtract them from the reported number of ballots cast with a vote on them for president to get national residual vote stats. I'm not sure anyone has written anything about this.
This comes back as "Illegal content found (spam?)" (note that I allow `a` tags in comments). That's puzzling because it's very boring text and there's no indication in the error what part of the message triggered the spam filtering.
It's even more puzzling because I posted this as an admin and my admin user settings have the antispam filtering unchecked.
So, it sounds like this could be a bug or a feature request: User groups who have antispam filtering disabled in the "Users" -> "(user group name)" tab should not have their comments antispam filtered!
