Ever since I turned on Content Moderation on my network I have noticed that items appear in the network RSS feed before they are approved by a moderator and appear on the site. For example, today someone posted a new discussion topic in our Forum, but since I have Content Moderation turned on for Forum discussions, it did not appear in the Forum. I actually did NOT approve this particular discussion because it violated our network's posting policy for spam, yet it was still posted to the network RSS feed.
This is obviously a bug. Items should not appear in our network RSS feeds (specifically the Forum feed) until they are actually approved, not as soon as they are posted and awaiting approval. Can we please get this fixed?
Attached is a screen shot of our Forum RSS feed showing a discussion topic (it's the top item in the feed) that was awaiting approval and then deleted, so it never actually appeared on our network, yet there it is in the feed as if it was.
Thanks for the report. This is a known issue. I will add your report to our bug report documentation.
