(a) In fact there certainly was a mail posting delay on this group,
mozilla.general. The following recent messages of mine to this group
were delayed:

    9th August, delayed about 6 hours
    10th August, delayed about 10.5 hours
    11th August, delayed about 7.5 hours
    13th August, delayed about 9 hours
    13th August, delayed about 8 hours

I also had one message to m.support.thunderbird on 15th August delayed
by 9 hours.

(N.B. I read and post to all the mozilla.* groups, including this one,
as mail lists.)

(b) I emailed Chris Ilias (on 17th August) to enquire as to whether
there was a technical problems or if my posts were being delayed by
moderation and he confirmed that none of my messages had gone through
the moderator queue (and that m.general is not moderated) and that I was
probably experiencing a server issue.

Hence my message of thanks to whoever it was who fixed the issue on the
