    So, I’ve been on this site for years and I don’t remember having to have my posts “reviewed” before recently. What’s that all about? It’s a bit frustrating to wait when I might be seeking urgent advice (of course this isn’t always the case, but sometimes it is). Is this a temporary thing? If so, how temporary?

    Thanks,

    Jim W.

    The computer thinks you may have said a bad word, one that is in a list of keywords that are forbidden, so it holds the post until some live body checks it. I’ve learned not to take it personally.

    That may be it, but I’m not sure. All I can see is that there’s nothing on the admin side that shows your account as under review in any way whatsoever.

    Note that the naughty words mechanism can catch words for unexpected reasons. For example, “speci a list” (without spaces of course) gets caught in the filter that protects us from thousands of attempted spam posts for the 5 letters in the middle: ci a lis. Sometimes annoying, but the overall outcome is critical to keeping those kinds of posts out of the forums. You get plenty of those in your email.

    That may not be it, but as I mentioned, your account is marked as completely non-moderated.

    The typos here are most likely because I’m, a) typing this on my phone; and b) an idiot.

    Huh.
    Yeah, every time I post it says I’m being monitored for “possibly breaking the rules” or some other similar reason.

    Oh well. Thanks for the replies guys. Guess I’ll sleep well tonight 😀

    next time it happens in a way that makes no sense, send us a copy of the post via the Contact Us link at the top of the page, we’ll see what we can figure out….

    The mechanism will always tell you why it happened. The dialog box that pops up tells you the word that the mechanism sees that is causing the post to be put under review.
