Yes, the message queue is very long, about two months right now,
though some "easy" things, like joining this mailing list, have been
getting processed faster.

Read the Guidelines posted in news.answers (and available by FTP at
the archive) and modify your message's headers to conform
to them. Then send the whole thing, text and headers, to the address
given in those Guidelines, where it will join the end of the queue.
An auto-responder has recently been set up which should let you know
your submission has been received.
