What kind of moderation would have been considered to be "proper"?

they've been mistreated?
On a public mailing list, you mean?  I see multiple options. Depending
on what it means for someone to *feel* mistreated.  And then it's hard
to argue about someone's feelings.

   * Is it the moderator's role to police behaviour, or is it more of
an admin role?
I see two separate roles there. One is the list owner or someone who
feels responsible for having the mailing list in first place. And then I
see the moderator to mostly reject SPAM.  I have that latter role for a
few dozen mailing lists and I couldn't do policing of people, because
that would mean that I'd have to actively read all these lists. Neither
do I think that it's a smart move to stop someone being stupid in
