I came across that new feature too, where Linkedin will inform you that you are temporarily unable to post in a particular group. Actually the definition of SWAM is still kind of vague. From what I gathered earlier you get SWAM'd if you a group managers "blocks & deletes" you in their group. However, few days back I came across this another article on Linkedin Help Center which said that if you are flagged in a group then you come under the influence of SWAM as well.
I guess you get the temporary pop-up when you're flagged in a particular group.
To be honest I feel Linkedin discussions are getting more challenging every passing passing day. Just few days one of the quality groups posted that you can no longer just initiate discussions. Only if the group admin feels it is relevant enough and will add value to the group, will they approve posting for it.
The discussions now in certain groups are at complete mercy of the group admin. Where do I go now for the latest happenings in the field? For the insighful articles written by credile people? I under stand that LinkedIn has opened it's publishing platform to all but it will be another couple of months before it rolls out for all of us. And it is quite impossible for me to follow each and every person and read their blogs/articles.
I very much agree on the hurt point as well on the fact that atleast LinkedIn now bothers to inform you about the moderation. Earlier it would go on for days before you'd realize that you're unable to post in groups!
