I just tried to make a joke about scam “cures” in the SE++ Canada thread
and got a brief message at the bottom of the screen that the post required approval to show up, and now there’s no sign of it (which fits with the message, if it’s pending approval)
I’m guessing this is an anti-spambot measure, to block accounts peddling snake oil? If that’s the case, is there any way for us to know what will trigger it to avoid having posts eaten in future, or for it to only apply to new accounts/or accounts with under a certain number of posts? I assume most spambots don’t have years of active post history.
