	It is worth noting that we aren't stopping list moderation
hopefully will catch spam from subscribed addresses), only automatically

discarding posts from non subscribers before it hits the moderators. To
approve Mr Ali's reply (which should be along soon) I had to read the
lines of 29 obvious spam messages (and then bulk delete them), and
have to fetch and read the contents to see if the message is spam or a
post if the subject line isn't obviously spam (and we may miss legit
by accident if the subject looks like spam). This is what we are trying
eliminate not moderation.
