That's right. Count me out. :-)
I'm not really supportive of the idea, either.
I don't like the idea either. It would slow down the pace of the list, and
I fear that a moderated list would only lead to more bad feeling, when
somebody who thinks they are making a legitimate point has their message
rejected because somebody else considers it a flame. And of course, that
bad feeling will spread to the wikipedia itself.
I understand why people want the list moderated - there's been a lot of
tiresome crap on here lately (there usually is). But if you don't want to
read a message, what's wrong with simply deleting it? Everybody can be
their own moderator that way, without having somebody decide what they
should and shouldn't read.
