Can't see new reply to my posts

Hi,
I am not sure whether this is the right forum for this query. Nevertheless, if it isn't please redirect me where it is appropriate. I could not find another forum where to send it.

I have observed that at least in a coupe of occasions I receive replies to my posts that I cannot read.
That is,
1) I receive a notification about the reply in my personal mailbox,
2) I click on the link in that e-mail and land on my post where all other replies are displayed
3) Cannot find the reply I was notified about.
4) if I click on the notifications link on top of the forum page, I can see that there is actually a new item
5) when I click on that item, the pointer is brought to the last post of the thread, which in this case is my post
and the new post is not there on display.
6) I tried again clicking on the notification and this is what I get: "You are not authorised to read this forum"

Has this happened to someone before?
Why am I not authorised to read that forum when I started the thread there?
What can be done in order for this not to happen again?

Quite often the new posts that you are notified about are Spam and deleted before you get to see them,by posting a spam you are notified of a new answer automatically.

Ah, ok didn't know about all this efficiency embedded in the forums....
However, don't you think that the person who receives the supposed spam should have a voice in deciding if it is actually a spam???

No, it the messages that are being removed are not "supposed spam" but clear spam messages.
They are removed immediately to keep the forum clean.
