Ah.  The way I understood it before was that new subscribers were
allowed to post but their posts would get moderated until putting
them on a "good poster" list.  I guess I was mistaken about the last

Thanks for the information.  I'm not one to sit by and critique
something that I'm not willing to help out on.  So, I'd be willing to
help out if needed.  I'm not a committer, but I've been reading this
list for years.
