I'm now a member of the above named group, but when I submitted a new post, the only option for submission was "submit to moderator". Are all posts to this group moderated? That would greatly increase turnaround time, and make the group a lot less useful to me.

Thanks,
Ken

All first posts from new subscribers are moderated ... this policy
eliminates spam completely in my experience.

I've only just seen your messages (I need to sleep occasionally ;-),
and they've been approved, so they'll now show up on the list now and
your subsequent posts will go straight through.

Cheers,

Miles

I had the same situation and was wondering. This thread was timely. My
first email (on 9/10) to this group was on the subject "[scala-user]
Best free IDE for Scala?" and after a day since I didn't see any
responses, I reposted (on 9/11) it again, and saw the responses.

One more question: The posts I do to this group, won't it appear in my
Inbox?

Thanks!

It's an ordinary mailing list like any other.

I see that you're using gmail ... I think it tries to avoid having
your own messages appear in your inbox.

That is a setting in your gmail account. Normally you don't see your
own messages but you can change that in your settings.
