I believe the terms are "moderated" and "unmoderated".
Since this is a moderated list, <snip>

Incorrect. A "moderated" list has all posts sent to the moderator, who must
read and approve of all posts *before* they are sent out to the list
membership. Techwr-l is unmoderated, and will remain so for several
reasons, only one of which is that *no one* wants the job of moderator.

And I've yet to see a single occurance of *anyone* censoring a message on
this list. (Though there have been thousands of examples where a message,
after posting, has been objected to. These objections do not equate to

The original distinction (tight and loose) applied to the listmembers'
perception of unmoderated lists. If you think techwr-l is moderated, I
suggest you go join a moderated list for a while (I'd suggest a few, but I
don't know your interests; there's no shortage of examples out there) and
learn the difference.

If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
