I don't want you doing it at all, Tony.  It's a minor but endless time
sink, and your other contributions to this project are far more

The only way moderation works on lists with non-trivial traffic is to
automatically reject non-member postings, and we're both opposed to
that.  Else it just pisses everyone off, as no matter how sincere
people are going into it, the *reality* of having messages waiting for
review, all day long, all night long, 365.2425 days per year, every
year, eventually wears them out.

If a great hue & cry arises demanding moderation on the user list,
I'll do it.  But I don't see sufficient crying yet, let alone
sufficient hueing <wink>.
