List moderation


A while back, this list's settings were changed to "all posts require
approval" by the moderator before being posted. The moderator
sometimes waited days before approving messages. Dialogs were
impossible. Thankfully, the list owner changed the settings back to
open posting. But that opens the door for spam. Not good, either.

Yahoo offers a setting whereby only new list subscribers are
moderated. This traps virtually all the spam, without slowing down
the regular posters. Once a new poster shows he is not a spammer, the
list owner can change that poster's settings to "no moderation". This
requires a little more work on the list owner's part, but it works
really well to keep an open list going AND trap the spam as well. If
the list owner doesn't have the time to perform this duty, perhaps he
can promote someone he trusts to moderator and that person can do it.
