Question is awaiting moderation - how do I contact a moderator?

Explorer

I've submitted a question but it's 'awaiting moderation'. Is there a way that I can contact a moderator to make sure that it hasn't gone in to a black hole? None of my previous questions have had this happen, so perhaps it's hit a spam filter of some kind.

Hi Joea9, Most of the moderators are on US time so are waking up now-ish (possibly a bit later being the weekend). I'm working on cleaning up the spam from last night (it seems they've adapted again), so and when I (or others) find your question we'll click approve. Don't worry.

EDIT: and http://answers.splunk.com/answers/282938/how-to-use-a-column-of-data-in-a-csv-lookup-to-ini-1.html is published now.

as @acharlieh said, we're mostly on US time. we do our best to look at the modqueue frequently. your post will definitely not get lost in a black hole--a real person will review and post/deny every post.

our various content filters are fluctuating as we try to handle evolving spam attacks, so some days might seem worse than others. one thing to note is that if you repeat a phrase exactly 3+ times within your post, it will get modqueued, which is a common issue.
