Actually, it's not perfect. Emergency moderation seems better than
setting everyone's moderation bit.

Setting everyone's moderation bit either requires manually visiting
each admin page (for ~75 lists) or writing a more complicated script
to achieve what that does. Worse, it loses the record of who was set to
moderation before this, making it much more cumbersome to undo.

Is there any reason you're counseling against emergency moderation?
