The moderator was me. Your messages were mixed into a long batch of
spam, noticed that they were from you and added your e-mail address to
the accept list. I'll swear that marked the Accept radiobutton for the
specific messages too, but it seems I failed to do that.

I'm very sorry about this mistake. Please accept my apologies, Karl.

BTW, isn't it possible to setup a spam filter that automatically
discards the most obvious occurrences? In the first week as moderator, I
received 1800 notifications about pending approvals, with perhaps 98%
of them spam.
