Hi, :-) 

I'm just curious... what is the moderator's role? do all messages get 
filtered by a human? how does a moderator operate? 

Hi David:

The moderator's role is to approve - or not, of course - messages coming to the list from 
non-registered addresses.  Many of these are spam, or return receipts, or out-of-office messages, 
which the list members don't want to see.  Some are from persons with a genuine posting, but not 
registered, and, at the moment, anyone who posts a message via nabble (the online archives/forum) 
has to have his message approved for it to also go out via the mailing list.

So no, not all messages are filtered by a human.  Just the ones the machine can't decide on.  
Varies from about 10 to maybe 100 on a bad day.  Normally around 20-30.  There are four or five 
moderators, depending on the list, most in Europe, but one or two, I think, in the US for when 
Europe is offline.
