It can do the first part but not the second.

What you need is a script that will check the moderation setting, 
check the time since subscription, and reset the setting if the 
threshold is reached. You would then run that script as a cron job. I 
don't know if there is a way to find the time somebody subscribed, I 
don't think it is stored in the config.pck for the list but it may be 
in a log somewhere.
