Yes. You basically just scan the message and make sure it is not
SPAM. The moderation only exists to block SPAM. This is otherwise an
open list and we do not try to block any other posts.

You get an email for every message that needs to be moderated. This
is less than 100 per day, probably less than 25 on most days. Since
there are multiple moderators you can just delete these if you are
busy. If you have time to look at them, you look at the message and
either just delete it if it is SPAM or do reply to all and click Send
if it is a real message. Your reply goes back to the mailing list
software which then releases it. Again, if it is SPAM, just delete it
from your Inbox and do nothing.

It is pretty easy, not too annoying (especially in Gmail), and the
more moderators there are, the less you need to worry about it if you
are busy.
