Yea, same used to happen to me back in '06 when I first joined.  Sent an 
email about it and got a response back from Don Becker stating that I 
was taken off the moderation list.  I'm not sure if he's still the 
moderator anymore, however.  While I think that's a great way to deal 
with newcomers, I'm not sure there is a fair way to determine which of 
the existing posters are and are not trolls deserving of moderation. 
Therefore I also vote to continue in a non-moderated fashion.

On that note, my sincere apologies to the list if any of my replies 
served in any way to kindle this discussion.  I got a bit colorful due 
to a building frustration from years of eye-rolling.

Best,

ellis
