 From the List Administrator:

I do not approve every message that is sent to the list.  To do so would 
be a huge increase in workload
for me, and the list members wouldn't like the result, since I get to 
this task about once daily during the
week at best; more often on weekends and holidays.

Also, the Mailman software does not allow me to modify messages that are 
awaiting approval, whether
because the sender is a non-member of the list or is on moderated 
status.  I've tried to trim off extraneous
garbage at the end of messages that was put there by the person's ISP, 
and I can't.  Thus, I approve the
message if it is on topic and doesn't otherwise violate the rules of the 
list or I reject it, in which case it is
returned to the originator.
