To be more specific, set Privacy options... -> Sender filters ->
default_member_moderation to Yes to automatically moderate new members
and set Privacy options... -> Sender filters -> member_moderation_action
to Discard and Submit Your Changes. Then on the Membership Management...
-> Membership List page under Additional Member Tasks, set "Set
everyone's moderation bit, including those members not currently
visible" to On and click "Set".

Then, in order to be able to post yourself, uncheck your "mod" box on
the Membership Management... -> Membership List pages and Submit Your
Changes, or better still, leave yourself moderated and post with an
Approved: <password> header. This latter method prevents others from
posting by spoofing your address. See the FAQs at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/4030685> and <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030556>.
