That's because your version (2.0.13) doesn't have it - I've got 
moderation over one of the lists on digital (which is set to 
don't-allow-posts-from-non-subscribers), so it wasn't hard to check 
(see screenshot below).

It's actually very easy these days; seems you're running 2.0.13, and 
things look quite different.

Definitely recommend upgrading to the newer version, changing settings 
so that those can't post from outside the subscriber list, and giving a 
few active, trustworthy members here moderator rights.  They'll get 
emails straight away as soon as a non-subscriber posts, and allowing it 
is easy as clicking on a link in the email and selecting the valid 
option.  In the case of cross-posting, it won't take long for those 
that do this to be permanently whitelisted, so it won't be a 
reoccurring issue.

The amount of spam coming through is nuts, even though it does seem you 
do have spamassassin running.
