Right. There are just ~3 people who write more messages to the list
each day than everybody else combined. High volume in itself isn't
reason for rejecting messages. But when sending just one or two
messages a day to the list they will all be accepted. The problem is
that precisely the highly prolific writers also often sent messages
that are clearly unkind and non-constructive. I am not sure what the
best solution to that is.

Currently we moderate everything, because emergency moderation mode is
on. And I think that was a good decision given how heated some of the
debates have been. But it does give the impression of arbitrary
"censorship", even though it only impacts a very low number of (highly
prolific) posters (which would have been put on moderation anyway after
having been warned) We could go back to only moderate "new list member
postings" and add a "member verbosity threshold" to place only prolific
posters on moderation. But then we need list members to help out more
making sure to point out unkind and non-constructive messages.
