I'm sorry, but I have the feeling that you are making too much of a fuss about 
this. Maybe you are misunderstanding what "moderating" entails. Or maybe I 
misunderstood for years what moderation of a mailing list entails.

I am owner of one mailing list and moderator of another. Moderation of the 
second mailing list is restricted to the moderation of posts that are held for 
moderation mostly because those post come from unsubscribed senders (99 % of 
this is SPAM). I'm not even subscribed to the second mailing list. I don't see 
moderation of legit posts (i.e. posts that are not held for moderation) as my 
task. This kind of moderation costs almost no time.
