Would a moderator Please approve a post for me?

I worked hard to get the 2018 Commuter Mileage Challenge thread started for the stroke of midnight on 12/31 2017 and 1/1 2018 here in China where I'm living and working (and using a VPN that appears like I'm in S. Korea).

At the appointed moment, I hit "Submit New Thread", and got a message that I didn't pay any attention to, while I was looking for the usual "Me First" message that I post for the mileage challenge. But my Commuter Mileage Challenge post never showed. I tried to post it again, and get a message that it's waiting for Moderator approval.

WHAT!?

Since when have I been put into some kind of "you've got to be supervised" camp. Is this some kind of arbitrary post-Obama rule that got created? Or is it something to do with my geographical change of address? I promise I'm still the hot blooded American (Native and Irish mix) I always was. I just had a yen for making some $$$.

I see I can still post messages that are shorter. So, why am I blocked from posting my larger message?

Thread approved. Your other two attempts to post have been deleted.

I have a hunch that the combination of Chinese letters and multiple quotes triggered the Spam filter.

Ah ha... Well I tried to edit in all the other stuff, and now the entire "approved" post has disappeared into the ether.
