It is likely that the moderator will allow through any mail that is
well-written, on-topic and not overtly negative or damaging to the
community. If well-written and on-topic mails were being rejected then
that would be a form of censorship which would be problematic. I do
not have evidence to suggest that kind of censorship is occurring.

Which of your positive criteria does it not fulfill, which of your
negative criteria does it fulfill?

Or was it well-written and on-topic, and since it was rejected it
falls into "a form of censorship which would be problematic"?
