Being a moderator just means that you can approve posts that are held
for the list.  It doesn't mean *your* posts won't be held.

This is a good feature, especially if you have savvy (but childish)
users.  Anyone can forge an email header and say their mail is from you,
but only *you* know the password to moderate the list.  So you can stop
those rascals at their evil game!
