In fact, that's what we sometimes do when a post is not suitable for the Discovering Theravada
Forum. However, my observation is that since we started this policy most of the posts in that Forum have been very good. Members seem to be more concious that the purpose of that Forum is to provide straightforward answers to the question. This is good for the moderation team, since none of us likes
to have to delete or move posts.
I realise it can be frustrating to make a post and have to wait for a an hour or two for it to be approved (such as your recent post there), but we're only a small group of volunteers here.
And please note that there is no intention of censorship. Anyone is free to take one of the questions and start a deep discussion about it in one of the other forums.
