Yes. Emergency moderation is totally separate from member moderation.
It is an unconditional hold without notice to the admin/moderator. It
does not look at member_moderation_action or member_moderation_notice.

There is a script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/set_mod.py>
(mirrored at <http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~msapiro/scripts/set_mod.py>)
which can be installed as bin/set_mod.py and run via

  bin/withlist -a -r set_mod -- --set --all

To set all members moderated in all lists.

There is also a script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_mod.py>
(mirrored at <http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~msapiro/scripts/list_mod.py>)
which you could run first to list who was moderated before hand.
