...I wonder WHY it was marked as such? I post fairly regularily and haven't had that before...I'd be interested to know why.

Admins have added you to the SAFE list, as per the PM that I sent you...

Craig, we are automatically on the Safe/exempt list.

I can't remember if I had the moderation info, but my post has a red dashed line around and is not displayed in the forums. Is this the a sign for "in moderation queue"?

PS: Ok, my post has just gone visible and w/o the red dashed line... but my question remains.

PPS: I can answer my own question now after poking a little bit around here: the red dotted line indicates spam suspicion.
Nice to have a simple questions marked as possible spam... :(

The Connect site has been bombarded by spam postings this year  - people advertising clothes and other goods for sale. Consequently the Connect development team introduced a third party spam catcher called Mollom.  This has an unfortunate tendency to mark some posts as spam (red dotted line around the posting) but the admin team or the trusted advisors can clear the spam flag, and the admins will normally mark well established posters so that Mollom will no longer block their questions or contributions.  The exact logic used to determine whether a posting is spam or not is unclear due to it being a third party product, but it has been incredibly successful in blocking the regular spammers.  The TAs will report any flagged postings to the Admins and so there should not be a long delay in the posting appearing.

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.

...really glad it has been implemented, and I've seen a massive decrease in spam. If it blocks a small amount and gets rectified, then power to the people I reckon! :)
