[Mailman-Users] Can I prevent all members, except list manager, from sending mail to the list??

What that part of the FAQ is referring to is under the Membership 
Management portion of the list administration page. Clicking on that 
link should bring you to a page with a table of all of your subscribers 
whose addresses start with an 'a'. At the bottom of the page is an 
option to "Set everyone's moderation bit, including those members not 
currently visible" - select 'On' and then click the 'Set' button, then 
find your address and turn the mod bit Off.

Hope this helps,
