You can do this easily from the web interface and not have to change 
the setting for each individual user.

On the Privacy Options->Sender Filters page there is a setting to 
control if new members are moderated by default. You would want to 
set this to No before mass subscribing anyone else.

At the bottom of the Membership Management page, you can set the 
moderation bit for all subscribers on a list to on or off in one operation.
