Moderation Parameters - Introduction

There are several moderation parameters that you can adjust. Everything is based on a flexible scoring system. If a message accumulates too many penalty points, and exceeds a threshold that you set, it will be forwarded to you. You can then approve or reject it manually.

Messages that stay under the threshold are automatically approved and forwarded to your list server for distribution. A typical value for the threshold is 30 points, but you can adjust that, and even vary it according to the time of day (see below) and the person who is posting the message.

In the following sections we describe how the scoring system works, and how you can customize it for your list. Everything can be controlled via a Web GUI interface at Just log in and click the name of your list.
