Subject: RE: [dita-users] Re: xref requirements

Thank you for letting us know about the problems you've been experiencing on
DITA XML.org. We're investigating it now. I suspect David is right about
overly aggressive spam filters. 

I'll report back as soon as we've got it fixed. In the meantime, please
accept our apologies.

This is ridiculous!

There have been issues with spam content on dita.xml.org, and I  
imagine that is what's behind this. But it seems the filters are now  
too aggressive, perhaps?

Perhaps dita.xml.org should become partly moderated, like the dita  
users list is? Moderated membership, at least. You don't need to be a  
member of OASIS to post on any of the Focus Areas.

Something for the Focus Area SC to consider, anyway.

With many apologies to everyone affected.
