Why is this site so paranoid?

I'm just wondering what has made the pcbsd.org site in general so paranoid that it has to be locked down so severely. My posts have been moderated, sometimes not showing up for 24 hours or more. I do not have permission to create my own User page on the wiki. Has there really been this much abuse in the past? I promise I'm not an abuser.

If it's a question of earning some kind of reputation, how can I do that when I cannot even contribute to the discussions? If that's the case, it's a Catch-22: I cannot contribute without earning the reputation, but I cannot earn the reputation without contributing.
