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.
