I'm not sure why you'd need a regexp to do this, discarding non-member
and moderated-member posts should do it.

Check out FAQ 3.11:
 "Set the member_moderation_action to Reject and add a nice rejection
  notice text to the following text box.  Say something like "this is
  an announcement list, to reach the band, please email band at dom.ain"

  Set the generic_nonmember_action to Reject or Discard."

"Action to take when a moderated member posts to the list" => Discard
"Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined"
 => Discard

"Should messages from non-members, which are automatically discarded, be forwarded to the list moderator"
 => No
