Why is my post not showing up?
Your message should appear within 5 minutes of posting. However, depending upon the route it takes, it could take several hours before becoming visible to you in the Newsgroup globally across all Usenet providers' servers. Your message leaves your computer and is passed from server to server as it propagates through Usenet and is available via other Usenet providers.
There could also be a delay if the group is moderated. In cases where groups are moderated, a moderator must approve the post before it appears. The time it takes for a post to be reviewed by a moderator varies from group to group. If a moderator rejects a post, it will not appear in the group and will not be propagated.
