I disagree with this suggestion, on two counts:

1) holding posts for approval means that someone has to go through 
them all and make a decision on each one.  Who will this be?

2) when send mail with an incorrect return address to a mailing list 
and I get a "held for approval" message, I can't just fix the problem 
and re-send the mail, because then if the e-mail is approved you get 
two copies of the message floating around.  I would much rather just 
get the bounce.
