Trapped for the weekend.
Many page views are missed when this happens.
I believe the cause was that my instructable contained the word knife [http://www.instructables.com/id/Cut-Paper-Circles-With-Ease-Drawing-Compass-Knif/] and thereby became trapped in the filters setup to catch dangerous instructables. I understand the need for filtering and containing dangerous projects but having reviewed and released projects keep their original posting date means lost exposure.
Maybe nothing can be done about it but I needed to share my frustration. Self therapy perhaps. There, I'm already feeling better about it.
