Review moderation

The site apparently didn't like how much I was editing one of my reviews and decided to put it on hold for moderator approval.  How long does that usually take, and what's the actual threshold for triggering this, so I can avoid it in the future?

Because on the internet we can't have nice things, AllMusic had a real issue with spam accounts, abusive speech and fraudulent messages appearing in our user reviews.  We put in place a series of checks against words, phrases and URLs that we use to safeguard anything that might be an issue. (In this case you appropriately used the word "H-E-double hockey sticks" which is in our list).

We check for reviews under moderation multiple times a day. Yours is up now.
