To my knowledge, mailman does not keep track of this. I have the list
software send me notices of messages held for moderation and file them
in a folder sorted by subject. When I get a new notice I can see
previous messages about the person. If you put a person on moderation,
you could send yourself a message with that same subject, recording why
they were put on moderation.
