The moderators don't know all the spam rules but we are fairly sure that the Spam filter increases the probability of diverting to the queue especially for Nabble postings , but we suspect also for certain high-risk domains, and using HTML mail.

The queue's are fairly short and if your posting doesn't get to the list within 12 hours you can be reasonably sure it was intercepted and will never appear. Some postings from Nabble do not even reach teh moderator queue. If it had a blank Subject or a Subject that was all question marks the moderator might have simply discarded it without even looking at it. I do not see any posting from your address in the Archives for May or April.
