Why can't I post in the JRuby mailing list?

Man I know this is in the wrong forum, so first let me apologize.
However, I can't figure out why I am unable to post in the JRuby
google group. I have tried on two separate occasions (12 hours apart)
and it's now approaching 12 hours since my last attempt. What am I
doing wrong? I think there's a wait for first time posters, but does
it usually take this long?

Once again, my apologies for posting in the wrong forum. However,
addressing it doesn't make it right, but please understand my
frustration.

pyou cant post to it through google groups. You have to go in an
physically join their list. The postings APPEAR in google groups, but
posting to and replying to posts must be done through their list via
emailing user@jruby.codehaus.org . You can subscribe to their list at:

Thank you, and I really appreciate it. I'll go look into it now.

Side note: these mailing lists are a little silly. I don't know why
they just don't use forums instead.

Off-topic and just my opinion:
Because forums are for people with email disabilities.
Backed by my enjoying the mailing-lists far more since I filtered forum
posted messages from them...
