No moderation! Never!!! I hate moderated lists! Besides, who would do
it? It's time-consuming, and delays postings forever.
One thing Eric *could* do, I think, is change the list parameters so
that only people who sub can post. But since we're gatewayed to
usenet, and anyone can post to usenet, that wouldn't be too effective.
I definitely agree with this suggestion. I am not familiar with how
gateways work (bad networking writer! bad!) but maybe we can tweak it or
set it up so that ONLY subscribers can post, period, end of story.
