There are two different things going on here... as someone noted  
earlier, Tom advised us that if there is a discrepancy between the  
email you subscribed from and the one you send a message from, the  
message goes to moderation.
However, I got with Derek off list about my subscription earlier, and  
Derek told me new subscribers are automatically moderated - the  
software is supposed to automatically put people on moderation for two  
weeks.  So signing up with a new email address (like some people were  
doing with Gmail) automatically starts your moderation period over.   
But, at least for me, the software didn't remove me from moderation  
after two weeks was up - I was still moderated after 3 or 4 months.   
Derek had to take care of it manually.  So perhaps the software is not  
automatically removing everybody from moderation after their two week  
"probationary" period is over.
If you have been subscribed for over two weeks and you are still  
moderated, you could try dropping Derek an email at sweetmarias 
  asking him if he would check on your subscription.  I would suggest  
giving him plenty of time to respond, since list maintenance is  
sandwiched in between his normal duties.

You are correct Wally. That automatic 2 week moderation has saved ALL 
of us from getting spammed by the hordes of emails ending .ru who try 
to get on the list. I actually flat-out blocked .ru addresses, 
actually. Anyway, its not a perfect system but it has kept the list 
safe and spam-free. I realize the weekend queue is a inconvenient, 
but we try to moderate first thing Monday. Derek has done a really 
good job of staying on top of this... -Tom

And we appreciate the work he's done. It tain't easy.
On a regular basis I'll respond to a comment on the list, but my default address is different than the address I 
subscribe to the list on. So inevitably my e-mail will bounce back to me with a message that I'm not subscribed to the 
list.I hit my forehead with my palm and say "duh!" and resend it under my subscribed e-mail addy. One of these days 
I'll have to subscribe with my default address and I won't have the problem.

I'll take a slight delay over loads of spam. :) Thanks for all the work!

DP to get to a full batch. 225g + 50g, to try in the vac in a couple
days. A random blend, but should be fun.
