Why? The new group has moderation enabled for new users (it also has
a more appropriate name, active management, etc.). Only messages from
new members require pre-approval; once you're established your
messages don't need to be approved before they appear. (Please be
patient with your first message or two.) Hopefully these measures
will mean virtually no spam gets through, and any that does will at
least get deleted from the web interface and archives fairly quickly.
