Our mailing lists aren't very wiki-like in that regard. The wiki-way is "the
more the merrier" whereas the mailing list way is "the fewer the better".
Some of the lists, particularly foundation-l, suffer from a lack of
diversity of opinion (too few voices, too much extremely against vs.
extremely pro, with the same voices in every situation). I don't know if
extra moderators who handle messages from unsubscribed users would help. But
anything that would help would be a boon.

But, to be more productive: If Wikimedia mailing lists
were set up so that mails from non-members would need (si-
lent) moderators' approval, I'd volunteer for those queues.
Seconded, I like that idea. The majority of mailing list messages come
members that have been around, and if it's a measure to combat spam then
yes, moderation seems a good idea! I have had many a message from a
Wikimedia mailing list go to my spam folder when it is perfectly alright,
and others that come through into my inbox when they are spam, which is
somewhat annoying. I would too volunteer to moderate!
