Approval is (someone will surely correct me if I'm wrong) only necessary
if you crosspost to newsgroups the FAQ advisors moderate, which for this
purpose is news.answers.

When they get stacked up and I can't wait any longer, I'll just strip
news.answers out of the "Newsgroups" field and post what I must to the
newsgroups intended excluding the one requiring approval. When the
approval finally does come through, I simply add news.answers back into
the Newsgroups field.
