to Mumbai and GLAM meetup - a summary

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.

The reason it is being held:

   Post by non-member to a members-only list

Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision.  If you would like to cancel

Hi all,
 This is a query about the moderation affair and sorry for making
another thread for the same. I get this message and get these kind of
messages when I'm posting to the mailing list . The same logic should
be applied to all suspected vandals,trolls etc. as some automated
intelligence (some filter/some bot) is there which does this work.

Couldn't that be configured to send notices to the member stating that
the message is suspected to be of 'x' nature (define x = troll,vandal
whatever the filter/bot suspects it for) and moderator would do it.

If this is in the current work-flow then I do not know what the whole
'hoopla' is all about. If its not, then of course it needs to be

I can share some part of the plug mailing list
http://www.plug.org.in/mailing-list/  where the same thing things and
I do get an automated message when my message gets moderated. This
happens instantly.

When the message is rejected, I do get a mail from the mailing list
listing the reason/s for the mail being rejected.

Then obviously I re-do the mail so its doesn't contravene whatever
reason they said or/and publish the same mail to some other mailing
list as well.

Lastly, if nothing of the above strategies work then I have my blog to
fall back on and do a 'Public letter' kinda thing.

Needless to say, till date haven't had to go that far.
