Angry You Are Over Moderating!

I get that you want to screen new people, but 6, 8, 10 hours later for posts to appear? That is ridiculous. Why can't I START with an inherent level of trust, and then lose it if I post something inappropriate?

Re: You Are Over Moderating!

I understand your frustration but this moderating style was determined by years of abuse by spammers, new members, disgruntled members, etc. I do apologize if there was an excessive delay in reviewing your posts, we make every attempt to manage all new content based on moderator availability....sometimes that causes a delay but we will continue to try and improve our process. I thank you for your feedback and trust that you will find your future activity unencumbered.

This period passes quickly, Monkey Bean.

I understand your frustration, but it keeps the forums from being spammed and taken over by bots and such. It's annoying at first, but it's for the best for the forums at large.

Thank you! I appreciate you taking time to address my issue.

And I would hazard a guess that many posters here aren't renowned for their great patience!!

I'm only speaking for myself, but patience is NOT one of my virtues, HOWEVER I've also moderated a couple of forums and sometimes it's not easy.
This is a big forum and considering some the topics covered here there's a risk of trouble-makers getting on and posting topics of an illegal nature.
I was pleasantly surprised how fast the time did go by before my posts appeared.
And INSTANT GRATIFICATION is never quick enough for me.
