Likely Ruben, right? he used that same domain once for personal mail 
didn’t he?

Yes there is moderation, but this is not of their action.

That recalls me an idea of convention/norm I had once about irc: for each 
channel, create a samenamed channed suffixed with “-offtopic” where anyone in 
the main topic interested in discussing offtopic stuff with people who’re 
used to discuss or be interested into the main topic would be.

The same way a “-unmoderated” list could be created that would relay 
anything having been moderated, for people who don’t mind reading garbage, 
insults and other unkind stuff (alongside with the answers to them).  But 
that’d be difficult to set up.  I recall having talked about a such thing 
with mailman hackers some years ago, but they were already too busy.
