Andrea said they are trying to get the anti-spam software corrected. It had been preventing new discussions for a while which seems fixed now. Maybe some fix also broke this but send the details to Andrea Parrott via a PM

Yep we are all spammers now.

Weird that it would mark me as spam and not allow me to send a message through the “Contact Us” link but would allow me to start a new topic on the Forum page. Was trying to message them about an error on the Ragbrai Shop page. When you click to purchase the 2021 Mens Logo Tee (the turquoise/blue/green one with the logo) it takes you to the page to purchase the purple Roadshow Tee.

Yeah, their anti-spam controls are out of control! Setting the knob at zero as it was for years was not a good idea but maybe they don’t have to turn it up to 11! Could we maybe try 5 for a while and see how that goes?

Meanwhile I would email
