There's a simple way to find out if our volunteers from users@ are
any good: Check out their users@ history.

I'm pretty and sure that the disqus offers these things as well.
And while I know that it's not the Apache Way, because, it wasn't
invented here, I'm pretty sure it's a good idea to experiment with
something that already exists, because we invent and roll our own

A list moderator can sign up an email to a list. Of course
most comment systems send out from funky email unique email
addresses that you can directly reply to for moderation..

So there's that.

But it's things we can find out. We don't have to endlessly
speculate about them.
We could just ask the actual disqus support!

If we decide we want to try to go in that direction, anyway.
