From what I've heard, there are certain (unnamed) topics and conditions that can set off filters which stop it from being published until a staffer can quality check it. Since it's the weekend, this process might take a little bit longer.

. If you are posting anything that might be controversial or might contain certain catch words*, do it early in the week.


*The list of words is not public knowledge, but you can bet it contains most cuss words plus words/phrases like "explode", "poisonous", "kill", &c

It's good that the entries are vetted if likely to be obnoxious but I saw an Instructable about how to carry and hide a knife. Here in Australia I think it is an offence to carry a weapon, such as a knife so I did wonder about that ible getting through.
