Hi I'm confused. I recently posted two questions here but neither thread seems to show. What went wrong?
That's unusual, certainly.
The most likely answer is your posts got picked up for moderation. That's a bot controlled system which randomly selects posts which contain words on the b*anned control list.
It's aimed at stopping the spam posts filtering through, but we've all posted something that's been held up by the moderators in the past. Sometimes it gets checked and filters through, and then sometimes it just never appears.
It sounds like you used a word which the bots didn't like.
If it's any consolation, I recently posted something that got modded, and finally turned up about 6 hours later. Realising there was a typo, I edited it, only to have it modded again and disappear for good!
