I have the same problem with spam. This change would be nice, but in the 
mean time, I set the default setting to reject by changing the following 
lines in admindb.py. It made it much less painful.


    buttons.AddRow([Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.DEFER, 1)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.APPROVE, 0)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.REJECT, 0)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.DISCARD, 0)),

    buttons.AddRow([Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.DEFER, 0)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.APPROVE, 0)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.REJECT, 1)),
                    Center(RadioButton(id, mm_cfg.DISCARD, 0)),
