Some of us use the mail list as our main or only access to Wine users.
It was recently explained that the forum feeds posts into the mailing
list BEFORE the moderators see them. This is a problem: the spam has
already hit the mailing list before a moderator can see or cancel it, so
the single thing that would improve our experience  is to move that feed
to a post-moderation pickup point.
