Good catch. :-)

I wonder whether there is anything we can do to remedy that problem? I
reckon the mailing software has some kind of regex-based filtering
mechanism? Would it be possible to let all e-mails pass that match a
fairly strict "this is a comment" expression? All other e-mails that
don't match this regex would go to the moderator. That should catch the
"Forgot Password" emails reliably, but everything else would go through
without delay.

In any case, what happens to e-mails that the list won't accept? Are
they in some kind of moderator queue?

Take care,
