"Post hidden; click to show" message
Hi, I created a post, but when I view it, others and I see "Post hidden; click to show" This hasn't happened to me in previous posts. Any idea what causes this and what fixes it? When I click the message, the post does show up after that, but I don't want it to be the default behavior and make users do this. Thank you!

Hi Mary, can I ask, what's the address to that Talkyard site? — If it's hosted by us, then there's a database field
hidden_reason: ...I could look at, and find out what's happened.
What I suspect is happening, is that the spam checker incorrectly thinks the post looks suspicious. You don't happen to have a link to the post? Then I could have a look and maybe figure out what the spam checker might have reacted to. (But maybe it's a private site?)
(Probably there should be a simple way for moderators to find out why a post is hidden (e.g. making
hidden_reasonvisible to moderators), so one won't need to go here and ask.)
