And as far as I'm concerned, asking about cross-platform libraries is

The group's charter

As I recall clc++ is an old group with no defined charter. Checking...
  Nope, <url:>
lists no charter for this group, but does list charters for related groups.

and FAQ say otherwise. Grow up and deal with it.

Well, the FAQ is a bit too restrictive, "Only post to comp.lang.c++ if
your question is about the C++ language itself." It should be clear to
anyone that having the unmoderated group /more/ restrictive than the
moderated one, is less than meaningful. For the comp.lang.c++.moderated
policy see <url:>, where
the part relevant to discussing cross-platform libraries is

The article will not be related solely to the use of a particular
commercial class library (with the exception of the C++ Standard Library
which will be considered part of the language, and cross-platform
publicly available libraries such as Boost and Loki), or compilation
system, or operating system. Example: "How do I clear the screen in
MFC?", or "Why does g++ do this?", or "How do I write a sockets
application?" Newsgroups that are often better for environment-specific
articles include*,*,
and borland.public.cpp*.</quote>
