I'd rather not do that. It's hard on the moderators and the person
making the initial post. I think that most people find this while
looking for a solution. To deny them the ability you post their
question until a moderator can approve them just does not seem like
the right thing to do to me.
The various moderators will ban the spammer and delete the spammer
messages from the yahoo group.
Anyway, that's enough talks about spam.
