What to do if post is marked as spam?

I just posted something and it got marked as spam by Akismet. I did some searching and saw that things like external links and lots of images can trigger it. But as Ryan has said in other posts, it seems to be a black box.

As a new user, what should I do?
*Wait for it to be reviewed (seems most obvious)
*Repost (seems like it would make it worse)

Anything I should not do?

I recommend calling Akismet silly names. Establish dominance early…


I cleared you, probably from the external link. Should be okay now.
