"Your comment will appear after it is approved"

This afternoon and again this evening (a minute ago), I wrote a reply (pretty much with the same content) to the following thread in SQL & PL/SQL:

Both times, after I hit Submit, I saw a pop-up message with the text in my title: "Your comment will appear after it is approved".

What on Earth does that mean?

    It means that your answer or comment did not pass the internal filter (spam, ...) and now needs the attention of a moderator or admin.

    Somehow the filter configuration has changed on April 7th or 8th. I see many posts in the moderation queue that would have passed before.

    I'll contact the admin and we have to wait for what they can do about it. In the meantime, the moderators have to look at each of the posts and allow them to be visible to the public. We look into this a couple of times a day until we get back to normal.
