'Access Denied to this page' am I being blocked by NFS?

Some weird things are going on.
I like NFS. The past months I have noticed some weird things:
my reactions to articles are being reviewed.
Ok, no problem here: since I believe that we need to keep NFS clean of spam/hate.
(Hell, I even raised hell about tag spamming a few years ago, because I care about a functioning NFS with relevant search results.)

However: my reactions NEVER show up beneath the articles. Not when I share my experience about the subject discussed in the article. (Which often nuances some of the advise given.)
And not when I say I like the artcle.

Yesterday I reacted to the article about the writing of The Last Jedi to say it was really insightful. Today: my reply didn't get through and when I tried to write another reply I get:
"Access denied
You are not authorized to access this page."

What is going on?
Who else experiences this?
And who monitors the reactions? If it is AI it surely means Artificial Incompetence :-p

Can anyone from NFS enlighten me?
Did I offend someone?
Did someone report me when I pointed you towards a discussion full of link spam?

My guess is that it has nothing to do with you, and everything to do with them attempting to stop the insane amount of spam on these boards and in article comments.
