That would be me :)

I do actually monitor the waiting-for-approval list, 99% of it is spam
mail that gets silently discarded, the rest of it either gets:

* silently approved (when i'm around to do it) if it has a readable
subject and/or first few lines of body text.


* rejected with a polite message advising the user that they should
actually subscribe to the list first and repost their message -- which
usually happens when a user posts a feature request, or their message is
in a language other than english.

However, the website should be updated to say the list is approve-only
(at the very least) -- thanks for the reminder, it'll get done on
monday :)
