Zak I appreciate your prompt response once again, but with respect that's not quite what I was getting at.
What I'm not clear about here is the precise situation I find myself in; am I under this "post-10-wait-7" (let's call it that for convenience) arrangement as a default because a) I am a new poster (i.e this happens to everybody), or b) there was (perceived to be) something wrong with what I posted which triggered a content filter?
If a), then fair enough, I suppose, although Matrix won't be winning any PR points from me for letting me waste 10 minutes on a posting that was never going to be accepted. A funny way to find out about this arrangement, don't you agree? Is there a Sticky that sets out this policy? My apologies if I've missed it.
If b), as before, the content filter has got it wrong, I have been unfairly blacklisted from certain parts of the Forum and this needs to be fixed. I'm presuming that your status is one of Helpful Fellow User rather than a Mod or otherwise affiliated with Matrix, and can't directly assist with this aspect.
I'd be grateful if you (or someone else) could tell me whether a) or b) above is the actual state of affairs.
