I have been moderated on the list recently.  I received notice that I  
was moderated, and on consideration of the topic I agreed with the  
moderation.   Honestly there should be more moderation rather than  
less ;-)

It has been what I've been hoping for ;-) So it is certain why *I* ask

I don't know about recently, but a year or so ago I replied to a  
notice that my post was rejected and I got a detailed answer in  
response.  That answer satisfied my curiosity, and even though I  
didn't agree entirely with the decision it was a "close enough" call  
anyway.   I don't have any problem with the process as I have  
witnessed it.  If it is still being handled in this fashion then I see  
no need for change.
