Which article? Can you give us a link to it so we know which one it is?
Remember, we moderate dozens of articles a day, sometimes many more than that.

When you submit an article, it goes to a moderation queue where it is checked for suitability, and the community of moderators - all of whom are article authors themselves - and let through or not. It would appear that five moderators (including myself) have closed it as "unclear". That's not saying "it's clickbait": it it was clickbait, we would have used a different reporting mechanism and your account would have been closed as well, we don't like spam here! Laugh | :laugh:

What it means is that we didn't think it was clear and useful enough for publication in it's present form - that's not the same as saying "this is garbage" or "this is spam" - we have specific reports for those - it's saying that it isn't obvious to the moderators that the article is unready for publication, or that the subject is relevant. We moderators aren't here to make your life difficult, or to be nasty - quite the reverse, we protect the site from not-ready articles, and authors from the derision and downvotes that poorer articles can receive. And to be a moderator, you have to write articles, so we know what it feels like when you slave away on something and Joe Moron from Stupidity High School, Kansas finds out it's not what he needs to hand in as his homework ... Laugh | :laugh:
If we let this though as it stands, it would in our opinion - at best - be ignored, and more likely downvoted into oblivion. We'd like to save you that pain!

But without knowing which article it is, we can't be at all specific as to why we felt that way.
