Ah, thanks. Just a documentation bug then. The documentation for the
relevant options is much more clear with Mailman-2.1.

I've now changed the mailing list options so that non-member posts
will stall until approved by an administrator. If you use multiple
addresses, and want to avoid the moderation, you will need to
subscribe each address, (and turn off message delivery to all
addresses but one in order to avoid receiving duplicate messages).

Hopefully that will reduce some spam noise without imposing too much
burden for subscribers.

Please let me know if there are any problems.
