Hi,

I just posted an answer to a question and got a response saying my answer has to be moderated. What caused that?

The question I was trying to answer is at this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1304072#answer-1348998

Any information you can provide will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

hi, answers containing links to outside of mozilla domains or phone numbers are only published after a manual review.

this happened to me, too... the link was not essential, i was naming the website i'm having a problem viewing but nobody needed the full link address and not knowing including it would necessitate moderation is delaying the help process needlessly.

i totally understand why you would moderate links, but a suggestion:

it would be great if somehow people could be advised "posts with links in them must be manually approved by moderators before they will be published" so people could remove links that aren't necessary if they want to avoid the added delay.
