Whoever is the moderator of the Spanish American War Yahoo! Group. Please wakeup and post my messages from the past few days.

You posted like six messages yesterday and just can't wait for them to get approved less than 24 hours? I work for a living, leave home at 7:00 am, and get back home at 7:00 pm, and do not feel like being on the PC after arriving home after being on it all day. I just so happen to be off today, so I will get them approved and change your membership setting so that future posts will not need approval.

On second thought, in reading your messages, and seeing you apparent lack of patience and overall demeanor, I am not going to approve them, and remove you from the group. I created the group due to my interest in the hobby, and do not need to have such added bullcrap coming from those who at as such:

18 minutes after Rally's first post he sends this. Of course even if his membership allowed instant approval, at time Yahoo even takes hours to post mine, and I am the moderator:

Well here is a problem common with most of the groups. Messages do not get posted in a timely manner. This hurts your membership. How is a discussion suppose to take place if it takes hours or days for members to see your post. I usually forget I had posted and don't check back.

Then in the afternoon he tries to post this:

Maybe there is a lack of traffic because it is so damn hard to post anything. I sent several messages yesterday and none have been showing. That could be a factor for the lack of traffic. I belong to about a hundred groups and this group is actually more active than most. I belong to groups that hasn't had a post in six months. So just make sure messages get posted in a timely which will lead to interaction among the members. Good things will happen.
This group is one of the best and only one I know of dedicated to this period of gaming. A lot of good information have been accumulated over time. There are the photographs and files that are so helpful. Just because people don't post messages doesn't mean gamers are not using this group. It is a great service and should be kept up and running.

Sorry, don't need the extra grief.

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
