Why do some accounts' answers not show up on the answers feed?

You can see them when your alt account is open. When you check the answers with an alt account, they are not visible.

    The spam filter sometimes catches posts (mobile and desktop devices alike). It's an ongoing bug in the system, for years now. If that happens to your answer, do some editing to your answer, it will probably show up (sometimes it won't). It may take more than one edit. Sometimes an answer will post and be visible UNTIL you edit it, and that causes it to disappear (further editing usually fixes it). This has been going on for quite a while now, and is very annoying. Users often don't realize their posts aren't being seen by others. It happens to me a lot, if I edit a post or try include certain links.

    Been a glitch for years. The spam filter gets triggered at random times and "ghosts" your answer. 

    Editing and/or removing the link usually allows it to post.

    Known glitch. Edit your answer and it will usually show. It also happens less if you post in desktop mode.

    I believe there's a setting to hide your answers and stuff from other people on your profile.
