Public bug reported:

This is more of a feature request than a bug. I have added it to my todo
list but it's been there long enough to know that I probably will never
get around to do it. I'm posting it here as an idea in case anyone also
finds it good and wishes to pick it up.

I had read about the idea the first time on this post
(http://www.shirky.com/writings/group_user.html) which does mention
mailman. It's a bit long post but near the end, on the "Novel Operations
on Social Facts" section proposes some ideas for mailing lists.

There's other worthy ideas there but the one I was planning to implement
was the flame retardant in which basically if a user has been too
active, its e-mails would be sent with a delay. I think that's pretty
neat. Recently the mailing list where I am now is facing such problems.
This could be set to the whole mailing list or as an alternative to
place an user under moderation (for those that are actual helpful
members of the mailing list but have a tendency to get too much involved
in flame wars).
