It took about 24hrs for my first posts to get approved, but once they did, my account was "graduated" right there, so it wasn't a big deal. It's a bit frustrating, and maybe a problem for somebody who has a time sensitive question, but I'm sure financial forums get more than their share of spam, so maybe this measure is necessary.
I've seen worse. There was some forum I used where it took a full week for my account to get manually approved, and until that happened, I couldn't post anything. Lots of people complained about that, some taking more like 2 weeks, so it was happening to everybody, not just me.
