	This message appears to have gone through without waiting for 
moderator approval.

	It is typical for many mailing lists to require that the first 
few posts of a new subscriber go through a human moderator approval 
process, before the moderator will decide to clear your "moderation 
bit", and allow you to post normally.

	This is to reduce spam being sent to all members of the list by 
robots that subscribe to a list, spam it, and then unsubscribe -- as 
quickly as possible.
