thanks Mark, but with "greylisting" there are temporary delivery
failure notices - so this is not that. Unless the 'greylisting' is non
standard/rfc and/or manual, then i believe it is just called 'moderate'
and not 'greylist'  - it is pointless for me to subscribe to a
moderated list as I hardly ever need to know anything and only
subscribe to partake in discussion.

For example: It is simply confusing and stupid for me to reply to any
post as, by the time my reply is read by the list, the thread is
already closed.

example from today:

Russel Post at mailhost.linux.org.au: 15:46:39 +1100 (AEDT)

Stephen Rothwell replied: 16:01:40 +1100 (AEDT)
Julian replied 17:16:45 +1100 (AEDT)

But the actual list receive order is:
ac 1st email of (16:12) --> to list after 6pm
ac 2nd email of (16:22) --> this email received at 6:12 pm
