EP is a small company and in order to prevent people posting anything that is offensive, particularly questions that promote terrorism or organised crime, it has to rely on automatic filters when the offices are closed.
Sometimes innocent questions fall victim to these electronic devices. I recently had a question about an opera transfer itself into mature topics, and no members under 18 could view it.
I just quickly posted, who are your top 3 authors? and it worked fine for me.
Perhaps someone has flagged your account!
I can see that your question is perfectly acceptable.
I wonder if it was the word "Blackman" that triggered the filter. EP have particularly strong feelings on any questions that could "stir up" a debate on racial hatred.
It is a pity that we have to use filters, but the only option would be to not allow questions to post until they were checked for content. Although other sites use this system when their offices are closed, no one would want that system in place on EP.

You have someone flagging your posts.
or that.... if it happens after you asked.... and not while asking....
maybe a troll or an Ep rival
She hasn't been able to post it?!! Flagging happens when the question is asked
a troll then
Right!!! that's never happened to me then
The word perhaps. EP scans of words is maybe not too sophisticated. But it could also just be a glitch. Change the wording from "top" to "favorite" or something like that and try again
This site has got it's *** backwards I swear
Ep is stupid sometimes
That is definitely weird!
maybe use the word favourite instead of top....
well if EP doesn't let you ask something, you can't even ask the question, it doesn't get published.... if you can ask the question and it gets deleted after you published it, someone flagged it....
then one of the top 3 authors of yours must be blacklisted....
one of your top 3 authors must have a weird name that triggers your question to get blacklisted...
