Ok, perhaps you can clarify something for me then. Submissions to the 
knowledge base are (unfortunately) few and far between. So how is waiting 
for the approval of a post to the knowledge base a problem when there is not 
a flood of posts to it?

More to the point, remember that the knowledge base is NOT meant to be a 
discussion forum. For that, moderating every post would be a major pain. But 
it is NOT meant to be a discussion forum. It's meant to be a repository for 
specific answers and information that come up frequently.
