"Post to moderated list"

Does this change the advice you gave me? Sorry, I'm a little confused
sorting out the distinction between moderators, the moderator flag, a
moderated list, etc. Was my original description of my problem (wanting
to remove the moderator flag) accurate in terms of the problem I'm
trying to solve? I've been wondering if what I've been actually
accomplishing in my command is just allowing people the ability to
moderate other content - approving held messages. Are people that can do
this moderators, and is the moderator flag used for defining who is a
moderator, or who can post to a moderated list?

I simply want to accomplish the CLI equivalent of unchecking the "mod"
checkbox in the membership list within the web interface.
