[Mailman-Users] Is it possible to delay messages?

Hi Everyone,

I have a list that I ran for a number of years "un-moderated"

However, a few months ago the list went through a bit of turmoil, and as a
result I had to turn moderation "on".

The mere fact that the list is now moderated has acted as a deterrent to
those who were causing problems, and as a result the list is now running
smoothly again.

I'm also finding that moderating the list is taking up too much of my time
(even if it means simply approving messages to go out).

What I would like to now do is move to a sort of half-way ground of
permitting many members to send messages out un-moderated again.  However,
I'd like to give the impression that the list is still fully moderated by
creating an automated delay for all un-moderated subscribers (possibly even
2-3 hours, though a random interval would be even better) between when their
messages are received and when they are sent out to the list.

I'm using a combination of postfix and mailman... can anyone give me a
suggestion of how I could create a delay somewhere?
