An unmoderated group without the moderation delay might reduce this issue but I doubt it would eliminate it. There are still delays in unmoderated groups between posting a response and others seeing that response. And in some cases, the delays are approximately the same as for a moderated group. Also, keep in mind, many participants here participate via email rather than online. For them, there will be a delay between posting a response and seeing it even if the delay for an online response shrank to 0.
