I am still serving as one admin on other lists and there's never been
anything akin to "moderation" involved: you junk the spam and let the
other stuff through, usually with "mark this mail address as ok" to cut
down on future work.

The "complex" decisions consists mostly of returning some from multiple
pending attempts to post the same content and telling the poster that
one did so and why.

But that's actually rare, and if it's not excessive, it might be better
not to give the impression of micromanagement and just let things

That's the impression I also get from current LilyPond list moderators
(thanks David!): you don't really get the impression that there is
anybody doing anything except that the amount of visible spam is
essentially zero and that doesn't happen by itself.
