Default Why am I being moderated?

Why are my posts needing moderator approval?

Our filters will sometimes require moderator approval for unknown reasons. It could be that the IP address you're posting from was previously reported by another site (perhaps used by someone else at one time). We can't see the reason posts are dumped into the queue for moderator approval, as we're using a third party "learning" filter for that purpose to try and reduce the spam seen by other members.

Most of the time, the filter is very accurate (and doesn't require moderator approval for legitimate posts). But, sometimes it does place posts into a Moderator Queue for no reason that we can determine, as it's been doing with your recent posts.

But, as I explained to you this morning in this post, it only looks at the first 10 posts made by our users:

So, now that you've made your 10th post here (your post in this thread that I just approved and am responding to now), further posts will not be screened by our filter system.
