Membership Requiring Approval

It does - and in our formative days we did it as well because we were getting a lot of spam registrations. 

Do you think it bogs down actual members interest in joining?

Seems similar to an invite only system. Your membership will decline as people do not want to wait to join a forum, unless of course there is something on there that entices them. Usually downloads or something, and then they sorta vanish.

Most will still join, but leave once they see they must be approved before posting. Serious members will come back and post.

It's not a good idea to have membership approval unless it's to prevent spam.

Not many people would stick around a lot of time to get that approval. So, I wouldn't recommend that to any forum in general. Still, if you are getting too much spam content, then that's another story.

I am sure some people would come back to post after getting the approval but not all of them.
