Again, we don't have a "moderator" per se on this list.  We have
a "maintainer" of this list, and he checks bounced messages and
forwards some messages if those are appropriate for this list.
There may be some auto-filtering (e.g. "unsubscribe" messages are
blocked), but otherwise messages sent to this list are NOT checked
by the maintainer.

Please don't expect that the W3C has enough human resources to check
all the messages sent to public mailing lists promptly.  Moderators of
public mailing lists might travel frequently, like most of them did
last week, and it will not be desirable to stop discussion on public
mailing lists just because maintainers are off-line.

If you have better ideas to filter out junk mails, please send your
ideas to <web-human@w3.org>, NOT to this list.  Thanks for your
