They were never intended to, and somehow I didn't quite realise that I had defaulted the entire comm to moderated posts, but that's fixed now. Which means that there will not be a delay of unspecified time (due to RL considerations, I am obviously not at my computer 24/7) between you posting something and it showing up. It does not mean that I'm throwing the towel in. Spam, trolls, etc. will still be deleted.
I return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
