Daniel, you should know: I released your message!  Wayne and I moderate
the list, and the way I understand it, it's entirely an anti-spam
measure, not an attempt to encourage people to subscribe to the list
before posting.  The moderation was only instituted when people started
complaining about spam:

In fact, I'm getting sick of having to release multiple messages from
the same person, so I'm thinking of whitelisting people when they send
their first non-spam message.  Wayne, do you think this is a good idea?
