      I am a regular reader but not a poster. Email me offline if you want
      me to moderate and need my bona fides.

      their list of moderators for this list. In that case, you'll still
      receive the legitimate moneying related posts from the list (as well
      as posting yourself), but you won't receive the spam messages sent
      to 'list owner' for review.
