Just posted and answer to try and help someone out and it popped up saying someone will look into my post and it may be live soon? I've never come across this before and just wondered if posts get randomly checked? Thanks

I've tried to work it out. I think it's more to do with how often you post. Once all my comments were moderated but I posted little. Now I'm more active and I don't get that moderated message.

Once got a PM saying I broke the rules posting bike parts so deleted but didn't say why. That was before the sport section existed tho so I think it was that.

Had several checked when I have used shortcuts for words, so TT for TalkTalk etc.

I wondered if they were checking I wasnt trying to avoid the swear filters.

Can also depend on ip range. Work has a us based proxy which if I post from can get moderated.

You must be on the watch list

Only when you post absolute filth

Occasionally happened to me when I included a link in the post. Didn't delay it for long though, usually went live 5 or 10 mins later.

Just checked and it has now gone live, I only posted to tell someone they needed ID to collect an item from Superdrug, maybe they picked up on ID and drug and thought I was either a spy or a drug dealer! Thanks for all your help.
