This is certainly how the list seemed to operate, although with
a much longer window between starting posting and finding your
posts going through unapproved.

There is also Mailman's "emergency moderation" switch for a list,
but something of a last resort (it's useful for announcement only
type lists where even with all your carefully chosen rules to list
who is allowed to send you still want a backstop so you can check
one last time before it goes out).

Chris
