The forum has a spam filter. I don’t think this is an especially useful feature for our website as only paid up BAA member accounts can post to the forum, and paying for an account is likely to deter spammers. However, it is always possible for an account to be hacked and then the spam filter could be useful.
If the timeout was weirdly connected to the anti-spam trigger, then the change to the timeout may have resolved the problem. Another possibility is the edits contained text, a link or file not in the original post that triggered the anti-spam block on the post.
If you see this again then report it and the website team can investigate.
