Maybe I just missed the rules... or can't read the fine print, but when a post has a category of forum topic... I am not allowed to view that post. Doesn't matter if I'm logged in or not... just can't view
TIA

There isn't any fine print

There isn't any fine print to miss as such rmfred, those, or that particular post is actually posted in the moderators forum which is hidden, it seems a quirk that it has been listed in 'Recent posts' (I presume that was where you saw it)

moderators

Hi Guy's,
The moderators section helps us keep track of spam etc.
The titles shouldn't have been visible and I believe that issue has been resolved now.

Sorry for the confusion
Tony.

Sorry I should read my posts. "spam posts which have been blocked" would be better.
Spammers were using the titles (in the Recent posts page) from time to time to have their urls (or anything else) indexed as they were not hidden.

Sorry Dan, I see what you

Sorry Dan, I see what you meant. Have to admit I seldom use the 'Recent Posts' view, didn't occur that this was why a few links in titles were appearing, although I edited a few but more because they tend to break the layout.
