Hi all ... just a quick question.
When I post replies to some forums, I do not see my replies for a long time. This has happened in Applets forum, Java beginner and intermediate, etc. However, when I post to Java Certification forum, I see my reply immediately.
In all cases, I get the screen confirming that my reply was received. I also see the number of replies for the post in question incremented, and that post moves to the top of the forum.
I am wondering why this delay exists in some forums. Has anyone else experienced this? Please let me know.

It is possible that something along the way is caching the web pages.
