Should TAXACOM be moderated?

I also have full confidence in Jim Beach's ability to filter the
traffic on TAXACOM to everyone's satisfaction.  Behavior of other
moderated mailing lists, and the newsgroup
(Usenet) amply demonstrates that a moderated forum can also be
rapid and spontaneous.  By moderation policy, I think Jim intends
to exclude *only* subscription requests and wildly off-topic
solicitations, etc., and to do *no editing*, and I am more than
willing to have him apply such a filter to the TAXACOM traffic.

Yes, better Subject lines would be helpful.
