Review still pending

About 1 1/2 days ago I submitted a review for 'Out of the Past' (1947).  At this time the review is still pending in your system.  During that time I have submitted two other reviews, both of which went through immediately.  

Why is my submission being held up?  There was nothing controversial about my review.  Why is it being manually reviewed in the first place?

Please approve the review.

The submission number is #190127-125646-039004.

Hi, grantss. Sometimes when an item remains in the pending status longer than usual or longer than other items of the same type, then it is a matter of verification, trust, skepticism or doubt. If you believe that you can help make that process easier, then please let us know.

Clearly your (I assume you work for IMDB) algorithm that determines which reviews to manually check and which to let through automatically isn't working.  There is nothing in my review that would require manual appraisal or would even trigger such a manual intervention. 

I would also think that the nearly 2,300 reviews of mine that have already been approved by IMDB would count in my favour before a review of mine is randomly hauled out of the queue for cross-questioning.

There, that's my help on to how to make the process easier.  Hope it is used constructively.

Grant, Jeorj and I are users and contributors like you.
An IMDb employee will probably shed some light on this shortly.
