Post deleted or removed?

I created a post yesterday explaining what I believe to be a bug in the REST API. Shortly after posting, I received an email saying

Our automated spam filter, Akismet, has temporarily hidden your post

I tried to respond to the email for clarification, but the email bounced back. In looking at my profile, there’s no indication I ever made the post and when trying to manually navigate to the post, the site says the post doesn’t exist.

I can recreate the post, but I’d like to know ahead of time what triggered the spam system so I can remove those parts. Or if a moderator/admin can look into it, I would sincerely appreciate it.

Did it get resolved? I am in the same situation.

Eventually, after a week. Never heard anything as to why it was flagged, or why it took so long to clear.

Hi there! Thanks for bringing this up. Akismet is automated, but it is developed by humans so sometimes non-spam posts get caught in the filter. At the time our team was a bit shorthanded which is probably why it took a longer than usual time to be reviewed :slight_smile:
