Notices to the poster of held posts are not sent if the post is gated
from Usenet.

If a post gated from Usenet is rejected because it is from a non-member
in reject_these_nonmembers or with your change a non-member with
generic_nonmember_action = Reject or from a moderated member with
member_moderation action = Reject, a notice  will be sent. The moral
here is never Reject non-member posts, either Hold them or Discard them.
