MrB, I notice that before my comments are being posted, they are being reviewed. Is this just me or are all comments being reviewed for some reason?
FR doesn’t have the resources to review every comment before posting. The review process is done by fellow FReepers who flag anything offensive, then the mods look at it and remove it if prudent.
What you’re probably seeing is simply a delay from the posting page to the database and back to the display page.
Are you new here? It takes a while for the mods to trust you. I think it was about a month for me.
