People NOT on my ignore list have hidden posts. Why?

Thread is here.

Hidden posts are here--



Any idea why these posts show up as hidden for me if they're not in my ignore user list (I've double checked)?

They're spam posts ("First", "Second", etc) that the mods have hidden. For some reason they haven't been deleted though

Thanks. I only looked at #7, which didn't scream out "fifth" without your explanation.

Posts full of trolling & fighting between users are also sometimes hidden. If you didn't notice it, there's a view button on the right hand side.

I sometime post stuff for only the mods to see and also for certain users to see. How does this hidden words work in my post ? Users highlight my sentences below the last paragraph where

========================== =======================================
Highlight this area here ==> Hello EggHead !!! Neat Huh ?!?
========================== =======================================

there is empty space between top and bottom sentence.

You can also use the right tag
to put stuff to the far right side which can be
enough to make it less obvious. some forums
have a spoiler block, which on sd makes the
text blend into the background completely as below.

In some cases, it is better to just blank out spam bots rather than removing the account. This keeps the owner from realizing that the spam bot has been rendered useless. If you remove the account, they know and will simply create a new one.

fwiw, as mentioned by jkee, changing the color to white is not as effective as using the spoiler tag, as not everyone is using a theme that has a white background Smilie

to use it just wrap your text in spoiler tags like so:
Code:
[spoiler]hidden text[/spoiler]
