Though there are some differences of approach between various members of
the evil uber-geek cabal that look after these things I think for the
most part the moderation of this list resolves to "check the box labeled
'discard all deferred messages', make a quick scan of the deferred
messages to see if there is anything amusing, press the submit button".
The list address has been around for quite a while now and consequently
attracts a lot of spam so doing anything else would be a pain in the

If however you regularly face the risk of posting from an unregistered
address (like you use a client that allows you to use multiple
addresses) you can sign up with multiple addresses and tick the box on
all but one of them for "no mail" so you can post from any of them.
