Can't post message

P: n/a
I'm trying to post a message here but after several attempts it still
dosn't appear. I've only just registered, is there a delay before
posts become visible?
Thanks

Posts on Google Groups, like any Usenet web portal, will take some time
to show up. This is why the page will state "Your message will appear
*momentarily*". The delay is pretty short, but I've seen it take over a
minute once.

Also, this article is pretty informative:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet

Specifically:

"Web-to-Usenet gateways often hide the fact from users that [...] Usenet
is still at its core a decentralized store-and-forward system and,
therefore, articles do not simply appear "everywhere" once they have
been posted. This typically leads to multiple posts with the same
contents [...]"

He's using google groups Rami, and I do believe you need to register with
google to use the service via their interface.

Delays (and/or dropped posts) are part of usenet. Nothing 'weird' about
it. I see your previous post though.

it's funny, though, for him to think he has a proplem posting to
usenet...and to resolve the problem, posts to a usenet group for help.
