I'm not sure why my comments on news articles are being flagged for moderation. I'm not putting hyperlinks in them. I'm not doing any copy/paste weirdness. I'm not trolling or insulting anyone, so I'm confused why my comments are getting flagged.

Any explanation why is much appreciated.

Thanks!

EDIT: Additionally, I can post from my phone, but not my PC -even after deleting cookies and trying different browsers (Chrome and IE)

2ND EDIT: I'm back in good graces, I guess. Still not sure what happened.

It really shouldn't get flagged without a link in most cases, but if you try to repost and have 3 comments flagged for moderation at the same time, then all of them will be flagged until the queue is cleared. I think you had some with links to videos or the like originally that were flagged. Sorry if I was slow to approve them.

I just tried to post (on the Body Count article) and got flagged for moderation. No links, no copy/paste. Just a long comment that took a bit to type while I was choosing my words carefully.
I don't mean to be a PITA about this... ;)
