It would be nice to have some sort of message saying that your message has been posted but is up for review in the moderation queue.
Seeing as there are currently some issues with it, I posted a reply to a message in the lounge, after returning to the lounge and not seeing my message I posted it again (after that I figured I'd check sugs & bugs forum).
I know it's only temporary and the current problem will be fixed soon enough, but even for those messages that really should go to the queue it might be good to see the reason why it's not visible in the forum yet.
Yes, the system is broken. If you are able to authorise messages then you can do it from a separate tab in your browser. If not then you will have to wait for one of us to do it for you. We need a special "wake up, Chris!" button on the home page.
It seems that I cannot post a message, at least in Spam & Abuse Watch forum, without being instantly flagged as spammer.
OriginalGriff had to pop my post out of the moderation queue. And my answer to him seems to have been moderated, also.
On my reputation page, there a 2 entries corresponding to both messages that have been moderated:

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.
I'm building a personal professional site. Stuff around me from a technical stand.
For this I've got a WordPress blog. A created a page that gets the RSS feed of that blog, and gets the RSS feed of CodeProject and combines them.
I used the link from my profile. But every now and then, I seem to get random content.
I just deleted a message in the C# forum (it was down-voted, and upon reflection, I decided that what I wrote was wrong) - 'Threads vs. Tasks'. Given that the site records postings, up-votes, and down-votes, should the reputation points accrue / debited not be "undone?"
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
With some very limited experimenting it would seem like that removing a message that have had some subsequent action happening to it such as a response or a vote will only exchange the subject and message for a standard text.
I could be wrong though.
Add a way for CP members to endorse each other in terms of skill-set/ability. Weighted reputation points would be earned for each endorsement (like article voting is weighted by reputation of voter). Allow the voter to leave a short comment regarding his/her vote. Other users should be able see who you endorse, and who endorses you. It might be useful to see the date of the endorsement as well.

I can't see this one, John. I think the reputation system now reflects "endorsement" of the only meaningful kind we can possibly do given the fact that for most of use face-to-face verified knowledge of other people's skill-sets, outside the technical, is limited to the few members, on average, that most members know "personally."
I might be able to have a fairly objective view of someone's depth, and knowledge, and achievements, in writing code, but how could I know how that might "map" to other aspects of their character, behavior, ability to work in a team, etc., etc.
Yes, I think the rep-system here is flawed, and can-be- and is- gamed, by some, but, so is every other rep system anywhere in the netiverse
But, yeah I would hire you to organize getting my Mustang hot-rodded, if I had one.
«I'm asked why doesn't C# implement feature X all the time. The answer's always the same: because no one ever designed, specified, implemented, tested, documented, shipped that feature. All six of those things are necessary to make a feature happen. They all cost huge amounts of time, effort and money.» Eric Lippert, Microsoft, 2009
As the one he got rudely shouty with, I was a little peeved by his "over-effusive" reply, but it certainly didn't merit banning -- and the only person who really has room to complain about that message is me.

I can see someone getting peeved with your message his was a response to - there are some ... um ... delicate souls ... here who can get "over enthusiastic" when they see even censored swearwords - but his was just shouty.
I see no reason for banning either. It's possible it's a vendetta thing: we know he got banned before.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Anyone can say absolutely anything to/about me in fun, but I reserve the right to not accept maliciousness (that's kinda one of the things that being English is about).
I don't think he was being soberly malicious; it read more like he was drunk and bombastic (annoyance level +1), he somewhat strongly implied that everyone was idiotic for not getting his opinion by looking at a wiki page (annoyance level +2), and he would not say what he was talking about (annoyance level +2).
So yeah, "a little peeved" describes it well enough.

In the ASP.NET section[^], I was told that is not about questions and answers only, but it is for discussions too.
So why is the text on the button "Ask question"? Shouldn't that be "New discussion" as it is here. I believe that would make more sense, since I had to add a suggestion, not a question; that was ambiguous there.
