And for the record, the purpose of moderation is to keep spam from  
showing up on the lists. It's not to restrict messages from specific  
users. As a moderator, if I see a message that appears to be relevant  
to the group, I'll allow it regardless of what email address it comes  
from. I might look closer at a message that comes from a suspicious  
address (like only allow that one message) but I'm certainly not  
filtering messages to keep email addresses private.
