All new members of the forum are on moderation until they reach 10 posts. After that, your posts will not require moderator approval. It's nothing personal, just a method for weeding out spammers, bots, and trolls.
Thanks for explaining. I didn't take it personally, the Cass forum has some very quality posters, which means that the stringent moderation has worked to ensure quality control. I've participated in far more lax forums and the quality of discussion is markedly lower because standards for posters are too low.
Anyways, I don't want to distract from the topic being discussed ITT, but again, thanks for explaining.
