    Having moderated several forums myself over the years I know what an often difficult and thankless process it can involve. However, the protocol here of every post needing approval slows things down to such an awkward pace 'conversation' as such is hardly possible. Therefore I depart.

    Hi Dissily, post approval is only in effect for a new user's first three posts ... this has been observed to weed out nearly all spam postings. After three moderated posts, members are free to post directly to the board without moderation.

    Ah, thanks Gandalf, I should have read the rules more carefully although it's awfully tempting to run amok with one's fourth post. Thanks in advise for all the moderating. I know from my own experience it can be a fraught & difficult job most take for granted.
