Hi Lisa.  You are moderating framers now?  IMHO, bad move.
At the very best, moderation destroys the spontaneity of
a list.  The only time to use it is when you get a mail
loop going and need to stop it... and there are better
ways to do that, too.  When people ask questions and the
posts are held up for hours, or the answers are held up,
until a moderator can attend to them and repost to the
list, the mutual-support function of the list is damaged.

Censorship does not work, just like Hedley said.  There are
readily-available countermeasures to it.  (Free Framers
itself is only one of them.)  It's one thing to stop a 
flame war; it's quite something else to censor perfectly 
reasonable comments about list operations that you happen 
to disagree with.  Please reconsider this step.  Thanks.
