[Mailman-Users] default action on administrative requests

I sent this question a while back and had no reply. I didn't see my own
message come back to me by way of the mailing list, so I presume it did not
I'm using Mailman 2.1.2 with Python 2.1.3 with Solaris 8.
I've looked through the FAQ. I've seen a similar question on this list, but
the answer was "get Mailman 2.1". I now have 2.1.2, but this issue
still eludes me.
I have a list that gets more spam than legit email. I would like to have the
"Action to take on all these held messages" on the "admindb/<listname>" page
to have a default of "discard" instead of "defer". This way I can quickly
scan the "baddies" and then "submit all data" once I see they are all spam;
no clicking on the "Discard" radio button.
I don't want to use the Privacy Options -> Sender Filters option of:
Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action
to be "discard". I know that the messages would come to me with the:
Should messages from non-members, which are automatically discarded, be
forwarded to the list moderator?
but I really don't want the messages automatically coming to me; I want the
member of my list to receive it if I click "Accept".
I've seen reference to a script that will just toss everything that is
queued up for a list; I would rather not do this.
Right now, I also wish this behavior for one list only, not as a default for
all the lists that I have.
What file do I need to change to make the default choice be "discard"
on the administrative requests page?
Pointers to documentation gratefully accepted.
