Will my post get approved?

Hello, I am a new member of this forum, and I needed to ask a question which disappeared because it wasn't approved. Generally, How long does it take to approve new posts? will it get approved?

Thanks in advance

    because it wasn't approved

    No, that's not why. We don't subject new members to moderation here. We only subject old members who have proven themselves to be annoying to moderation. But I digress.

    Your post was quarantined because it was identified as spam. As you'll note from other questions here on the same topic, and from the item that's pinned in NTDEV on this topic, your post will be released when you call attention to the fact that it disappeared and one of the mods releases it.

    Which you did. And which I did.

    So now we're all good.
