Yes, the terminology I am used to is that when you make the decision to 
release a message or allow a subscription, you are 'Approving' it (you 
may not agree with it, but you have decided that it passes all the 
requirements to be allowed on the list).

You can also put the person on the Accept list, which will remove the 
need for a moderator to Approve each of their messages and the list will 
just automatically Accept it (unless it falls under some filter that 
holds/rejects/discards it).
