This is a question that has been bugging me for a while.  If a moderator 
adds an "Approved: xxxxxx" header but misspells "Approved", then their 
password goes on to the list for all to see.  Without setting filters 
for each and every password (esp., moderator passwords which I prefer 
admins to not know, and vice versa) is it a good idea to add a feature 
to Mailman that would automatically hold emails that contained an admin 
or moderator password in the first few lines of the email body?
