Thanks, but...

...who is our moderator? Philipp?

This is quite terrible. We definitely don't want any bottlenecks 
concerning new member postings! I consider even a short delay 
problematic, and a longer delay would be a major problem! It's 
especially important with new members to give them quick feedback. We 
don't want to lose new users and this is a good way to do that... What 
if the moderator check this for a couple of days? :(

The alternative I can see would be to block any new spammer after the 
fact, as soon as we notice them. This will let some spam messages 
through, which also sucks in a major way.

Ideas? Does mailman allow the creation of a lot of moderators? Should we 
set up a duty roster?
