Default My posts need to be approved?

I don't understand why I made a post last night and after I hit enter it told me that my post needed to be approved by a moderator. Is this because I am new? It's pretty annoying.

To keep the spambots from crapping the site up with their useless spam which had gotten to be quite a prob, the site owner instituted this approval process for new members.

How long does it typically take to get a thread approved? I posted one in the rookie zone this morning, but it hasn't shown up yet.

No, I get that part. I'm just curious how long the moderators typically take to approve a post by a new member so it shows up.

it may be a measure by the mod/admin at rctech. they create the rules, this is so that ppl whom create new id's. will not abuse their id's for trash talk. before their post gets approval.. it will be reviewed first.

marcos pls correct if i am wrong.
