Okay. I was a little confused because of the "declined" with red exclamation mark.

Shouldn't it be "PENDING"? ^^

Yes, but it's unspecific. I've already made changes to the text and toned it down quite a bit. Not sure what to change to make it more appropriate... Your suggestions are very much appreciated. I will gladly accept any further hints or pointers.

"We had a problem processing that request. Go to the IMDb contribution homepage »"

What does this mean?

Must be some form of Anti-German sentiment (or "Germanophobia"). Am I the victim of bullying & mobbing by anglo-american imdb-moderators?

Do I have to rewrite / retype it ....? I didn't save it on my PC.

I can't call it up, because I get the following error: "We had a problem processing that request. Go to the IMDb contribution homepage »"

Hi Martin -

Unfortunately, the usage of the term "SJW" has flagged your review despite the context being used appropriately within our guidelines, and the review was incorrectly rejected.  I would encourage you to re-submit the review and post the submissions reference number here immediately after so I can take a look and approve it for you.  Otherwise, I would recommend re-submitting the review with the term removed or replaced with something else.

I made some minor changes and replaced "SJW" with socially "progressive" identity messages
