Yes, after getting a trickle for a couple of days, I received
a torrent, including my two earlier messages, just after I
wrote the third message.  On all three I've been challenged.

In my experience with lists, messages take seconds--minutes--even
hours to be delivered, not days.  Up until now.  Is my experience
unusual?

If it can take days for messages to reach the list, we should
be advised of that at some point, perhaps when filling out the
initial posting form.

If a person is to be challenged repeatedly by the system,
perhaps the checkbox (allow all posts from this address)
should be removed.

Such steps would obviate needless concern and effort.
