I was trying to post a content of the View Source of my page (it is not very big). The error message I was getting is:
"The post requires moderator's approval (etc.)"
Is it because of the length of the code block or I was downgraged somehow and need approval before posting a question?
I removed most of the content of that view source and was able to post it.
Can you please explain what is wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Also, how someone can remove his/her own messages? Sometimes I post a question and then figure it out myself or, like in this thread,
I don't need the message about not being able to post (it was a test after I got the above mentioned error).

There was a change to moderation here a while ago. Now, new members can post directly to the forums without having their posts reviewed by moderators. We moderate after the fact now. While that change means that genuine members can begin to get the help
they need as soon as possible, it also means that spammers can get their particular message out there more easily. So the spam filters were tightened up. Unfortunately, a side effect of that is that the occasional genuine post triggers something in the spam
filters and gets routed for moderator attention. That's what happened to yours. It was just a false positive.
You cannot remove your own messages. If you find the solution to your problem, perhaps you would consider posting it to the thread you started so that the rest of the community can share the solution. Or you can report the thread using the Alert Moderator
link and request that it is deleted. We will only remove it if it has no replies from other members. If we delete a thread that has replies, those members who replied will be penalised - which isn't really fair on them.

Thanks for the explanation, perhaps that error message should be slightly changed to not confuse?
Also, I see that two of my messages now were approved and posted, but the thread was already solved and therefore the whole view source of the page is no longer needed (unless someone has more ideas of improving it as I am still new to MVC development and
since I didn't do ASP.NET for some time, my knowledge in other areas is also rusty).
And also the message where I asked "Why I can not post anything" doesn't add content to that thread.
UPDATE. What was this strange div class message of the bottom of my reply? I didn't put it there.
