Who said I can't access any other lists?

I admin multiple lists.  Most of them are moderated.  I log a
browser into the admin interface for each list once, and then from
there on skip back and forth among the various lists and their
moderation interfaces freely.  Typically I'll keep the cookie for
such administration around for two or three months until the next
time I restart my browser.

Desktop security is not a concern.
