Yes, I've been moderated in the past, and in my experience about
90-95% of my messages eventually go through the moderation.  So more
than anything else I think the way moderation is handled on these
mailing lists is pointless.

A simple message from a moderator telling someone (or everyone) to
stop posting to a particular thread, and/or a particular topic, and/or
telling someone flat out to take a few days break, would, in my
opinion, be just as effective if not more effective.
