Just had a user get blocked (“silenced”) by system while trying to make their first post, for reason = typing too fast. The user mentioned he was copying something written in another document so that makes sense. But a bit confusing trying to resolve this as an admin:
I went in and manually un-silenced the user and told him to try posting again. But when he did, same thing happened. Maybe it would make sense to turn off the auto-block measures in the case an admin has manually overruled it?
In this post from 2016 @codinghorror mentions that “blocked posts by new users always come into the approval queue” — but we didn’t get an admin notification here, it seems this user went straight to “silenced” with no way to approve or not. Only saw it happened at all b/c the user emailed us. If it were the case that this was flagged w/ option to approve, that would be too!
