Far too much pure nonsense is published on the World Wide Web, and especially on UrbanDictionary.com.

Something that's very common to see now because Urban Dictionary clearly uses some weird algorithm that impedes definitions from getting published when there was a time when they used to publish EVERYTHING!

The site is a piece of shit now. Even if it's a G-rated definition, it's still unlikely to get published.
Not published? Fuck you, Urban Dictionary. You're useless now.

When Urban Dictionary tells you that your word has been approved by the editors and published to the site, but you find out that it really hasn't. It leaves you wondering whether it's due to a bug or a bit of good ol' censorship.
My definition of Ziocon was "published" by Urban Dictionary.

A phrase commonly seen when receiving a verification e-mail from Urban Dictionary. It sucks so bad because you never, ever have any idea why they didn't publish it because they never, ever give you reasons why.
Receives e-mail from UD: "Your definition was not published."

You: "WHY??!?!"

E-mail says: "You can choose to sign up as editor for Urban Dictionary."

You: "NO!!! I WANNA KNOW WHY YOU DIDN'T PUBLISH MY DEFINITION!"

Something you wouldn't see in your email after publishing an Urban Dictionary Definition and waiting for review. But it's really common to see "Not published", Believe it or not, Urban Dictionary Doesn't like Inappropriate stuff, or should i say, Urban Dick-tionary. Of course, this is not getting published, and if you're reading this off the site That means Urban Dictionary Got pissed off to prove me wrong.

'______' was not published: the title of a cruel, mocking email you will inevitably receive from Urban Dictionary after spending 30 minutes or more typing up a brilliant definition. They claim other users voted and decided not to publish your word, but really it was a shitty algorithm that only publishes acronyms (eg. 'SIUYA' - 'stick it up your ass')
Me: *painstakingly and eloquently defines 'the meaning of life'
Urban Dictionary: "'the meaning of life'...was not published"
Me: "SIUYA, Urban Dictionary. You've sucked since 2010"

The sickening feeling that your entries were rejected from Urban Dictionary. Often confused with anxiety and hunger.
"Your entry was rejected"
"Thats what she said.."
