One thing they do have that I really like:

  You can place members on moderator detention.  There are two

    1) Have the next XXX posts from that user require moderator
approval.  Once they get XXX approvals then they are able to post

    2) Ditto to #1, but bounded by time, not count.

One thing I really dislike:

  By default they rewrite the MessageID's on all outbound messages
to give a unique MessageID per subscriber.  This of course breaks
reference threading, dupe checking, etc.  This can (finally, it took
a very long time) be turned off, but it is on by default and admin
interface text is phrased to discourage turning it off.
