moderated Re: Proposal: allow group owners to set message approval timeout



There might be times when a moderator or an owner may simply ignore a message, say, from a moderated member who posts a message that is considered off-topic. Another use case is to ignore spam from unregistered users or spambots,especially from places such as Linked In and what not and these are sent to the list address.

I'm trying to understand this proposal, strictly out of curiosity. What do you mean that the message 'was not supposed to go to the list,' unless a moderator had already seen and rejected it? I'm not against this proposal but I don't understand it. It seems to be penalizing a group member for the group moderators' failure to act. ???

The following was observed on one of the lists I manage: an associate owner approved a message that was more than several days old and was not supposed to go to the list, causing confusion for some members.


Thus I’d like to propose having a timeout where group owners can specify how long a message needing to be approved stays until an automatic action is taken (remove the message, do not approve, etc.).
