But as aptomar says, the moderation is done to make sure people are posting in the appropriate forum, not asking SQL questions in the MVC forum, etc. They also keep a lookout for offensive posting and other problems. The good news is that after a while,
they will conclude that you are not prone to problematic posting, and they will "unmoderate" you.
I don't know exactly how they decide when to do that, but they unmoderated me months ago, when my rank was something like a 500 point "Participant".
I also know that they are working on speeding up the overall moderation process. I don't know what, exactly, they are doing, but I'm sure it will be an improvement.
