BackgroundAbout 1-2 times a week we get a new user who are told during account creation something like the following:
Your account status have just been set to spamcheck_denied by an admin or an account's moderator. If this is not expected, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know. - The Fedora Account System
What do you do?If you find yourself getting a 'false positive', please open an email to email@example.com with the following information:
- The account name you tried to open. Account admins need this to look in the Fedora Account System to check on the account.
- The email address you used to open the account. Multiple times I have gotten an email from firstname.lastname@example.org but the account which was opened was with email@example.com or some other domain. We normally do not activate this account in this case until we get an email from the one that was listed.
- If possible the ip address you had when you registered the account. This can help us figure out if some other problem is causing issues. We have to blacklist some ips just from the sheer amount of 'spam', and sometimes forget to remove those blocks.
