New user, edited post flagged as 'spam'?

Hello mods!

Greetings from an old 'new' user :)

Apologies in advance for the bother on a long weekend.

I signed up a bit earlier today and edited my first post on ntdev after posting it. After 'saving' it, it said my post was being 'reviewed'. If that's standard practice, I'm ok with it. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't marked as 'spam'. If it was, I'd really appreciate it if you could allow it to proceed to the ntdev forum. I've posted a genuine question and an early response would be of tremendous help in unblocking me.

    Yup. It was marked as spam. Many I’ve released your post from quarantine.

    A common spammer gimmick is to submit an innocuous post, that makes it past the semi-intelligent spam filters, and then edit that post to be all spammy. Hence the heuristic for very news users editing posts. I think.

    No matter, you should be all set now,
