Thanks for being a moderator.

My point is, that unless I misunderstand how things work, the total
number of messages to be moderated would not change. All mail for
bug-gnu-emacs goes through emacsbugs first, which does some stuff,
then sends it all on to bug-gnu-emacs. So, you're already seeing all
the spam, just too late to stop it getting into emacsbugs.

In other words, I think the current setup is:

ham+spam            ham+spam            ham
------->  emacsbugs -------> moderators ---> bug-gnu-emacs

I'm suggesting moving the moderation step:

ham+spam            ham
-------> moderators ---> emacsbugs ---> bug-gnu-emacs

I have no idea if it is possible, or who could set it up.
