    Post not showing

    I posted a reply to this thread http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...apartment.html

    In the "Last Post" heading, it shows my username; however, my post doesn't appear on the page with answers. It did show at first. I went back to edit it to add a link, then it no longer appeared. Seems strange. Maybe it's just not showing on my computer? I tried refreshing, also.

    Just thought I'd let someone know.

    Debra,
    It's part of our anti-spam measures. To stop people coming in and drive-by linking to inappropriate sites, the system is set so that any post by someone with fewer than 10 posts that contains a link goes into moderation, which means that it doesn't appear on site until it has been approved by a moderator.

    The post in question is now displaying. Sorry for this, but it does help cut down the amount of junk links that people would like to post. Sadly, the software cannot distinguish between the innocent and the guilty.
