It is very annoying to delay a post from appearing immediately as most other forums do and also makes one lose interest in posting.
Would it not be more practical to let the post appear immediately and just delete it if it is not approved?
This is what most other forums do I think.
OK, Derek, I'd prefer if posts appeared immediately, but some control is needed. Please keep posting.
Here's why I use the Moderator option:
A forum without controls becomes a cesspool of spam.
I find captchas annoying like a fly that won't go away. Wait while it generates, decipher it, type it. Sometimes 1 or 1 or O and 0 are ambiguous, among others. Then you have to do it all over again.
I approve posts twice a day at least, usually more often. I have a sub when I'm out of town. We don't get spam, no flame wars, every post is read or skimmed. I don't censor opinions.
I've been complimented on my moderation. Derek's is the first complaint.
