Akismet hid my post. What next?

I tried to post a question in this Discourse, but only the automated spam filter, Akismet, repliaed to say it hid my post. Akismet says, " A staff member will review your post soon, and it should appear shortly", but it hasn’t been reviewed in almost two weeks. I’m supposed to present on using Flox as an alternative to Conda, but I can’t begin investigating Flox until my problem gets debugged.

I’m not sure we know who that is but will look into it, absolutely. Now that you’re here…what can we help you with?

I keep getting this error that catalog.floxdlsc.com is not accessible.

$ nix shell 'github:flox/floxpkgs#flox.fromCatalog'

$ flox install qutebrowser

Following installation instructions from here.

ah! that installation method doesn’t match our latest. try what we have here - Install Flox - Flox Docs

we should clean that up so it’s not as confusing. thanks for reporting

Thank you for flagging, I found the hidden post and marked it as not being spam. I am unclear as to why the automated Akismet system marked it as spam but clearly it is not.
