The problem is not moderating the list. The problem is that I get a 
stupid useless mail every day I have to look at about pending 
moderations and a stupid mail I have to human look at when a spam mail 
gets in.

Note here: I get too many mails overall and the moderation queue mails 
are annoying as it's in 99.9 % useless junk which I have to manually 
look at.

Thanks for offering to help moderating the list, but that doesn't get my 
inbox cleaner. And that's what I care about. I don't care about how many 
spam mails are in the moderation queue, I care about the useless mail I 
get which I have to look at.

Given that I think a mail which is marked by spamassassin as spam and 
shown as spam in the moderation queue, should not be going into the 
moderation queue in the first place. If someone sends a mail to the kwin 
list which looks like spam to spamassassin it won't be something useful 
from development perspective.
