Default Why are my posts being screened?

I just made a reply to a post, and it said it has to be approved by a moderator before it can be posted. I didn't notice this before. Why now? Did something change?

That happened to me also, especially when you're trying to post some links. I think the bottom line is the mod wants to make sure our posts will not affect the reputation of certain products or sites or companies or whatever, before they release it (or they think the content might be contoversial). But so far, they never release what they censored.

Bummer. Sort of makes the point of having a discussion forum kind of moot.
I have been on countless forums and have played by many moderator's rules, but I don't believe in censorship of healthy discussion. There was nothing wrong going on in that thread, we were discussing cat foods. If people are not allowed to discuss this very basic and important topic openly and freely, I don't think I have any use for this forum.

But am I still considered a new user ? That 'approval' thing still happened recently. I believe all my posts are considered 'healthy' topic.

Okay. I'm sorry if I came across as rude. I didn't understand this was a rule for newcomers. I thought I was being censored for what I was saying!
