The short answer is that the captcha is only one of the factors in the
spam filtering. Which in this case wasn't enough to push it over the
edge into HAM. I just adjusted the captcha, so you should be able post
it now. Although you will still need to put in the captcha.

It seems that Askimet didn't like the tinyurl reference. So in a case
where it would work with the links, the added Askimet classification
made fall on the SPAM side.
