It is worth reminding that readers of this list cannot see the number
and type of messages being rejected (and so cannot judge what moderation
is being done), and that this moderation is being done by volunteers on
their own time.

It is also worth reminding that it is not possible to make all parties
happy.  Indeed, moderators get verbal lashings from all sides.
