Awaiting moderation at the SJR (no longer)

Check out this screen capture I made:


I hardly know what to say, except to point out the obvious. I left the above comment on the OE's New RSS links blog post yesterday evening. Shoo left his this afternoon. Mine is awaiting moderation. Shoo's is approved. Just to make sure I wasn't seeing things, I not only cleared the cache on this browser, I double cleared it. Then I checked the entry in yet another browser which has never even been to that blog.

I'm reading what I wrote over and over for possible inadvertent profanity, or some sign of the usual reasons for disallowing comments. What am I missing? Could it be that I am so disdained at the SJR? Why? For some criticisms I made in the past? Would it be too egotistical of me to think they sit around in the editorial board room thinking up ways to dis me? Well, that's a bit much. Right?

UPDATE: My comment was approved Thursday, March 29, 2007, by 2:15 p.m. Thanks, Jason. I'm much better now.

Marie, more than likely your comment was missed. Or it could have been thrown into the spam queue in Wordpress. I know occasionally I'll get a false positive on my blog.

shoo, you're probably right. After I got your comment, I left another comment for Jason. I hope he sees it.

Clutching at straws but it could have been the quotes misinterpreted as html code that triggered moderation. Someone needs to tweak it.

Good point, Rob.
