    IMHO it's childish for them to insist that the list remain open.  They should 
    only concern themselves with results not method.  When someone posts to the 
    list and their message is promptly delivered without any annoyance (messages 
    saying "your mail may be delivered after a moderator has examined it" are 
    annoying) they have no cause for complaint.

    Mail sometimes gets lost, it's something we have to deal with.
