See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/12812344> ;)

Note that adding addresses to the moderator box in the admin GUI General
Options section only gets notices sent to them. You still have to go to
the Passwords section, set a moderator password and give it to them. See
the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030693>.

No. Only someone authenticating with the list admin password can change
membership. Moderators can only handle requests which are held messages
and subscribes and unsubscribes waiting approval.

Have you tried
http://lists.1234legsgood.com/admindb.cgi/nspda_list-1234legsgood.com. I
think that will work, but if not, see where the "Tend to pending
moderator requests" link in the admin GUI goes.
