While I am sure it felt like that, it is worth mentioning that I have
been moderating the list too from time to time.  I just rejected 155
pending spam emails in the moderation queue.  It has been a few weeks
since I last ran the 'listadmin' command line moderation script.

Rejecting everyone not already "on the inside" from posting to the list
is a fairly good way to ensure the number of subscribers will drop and
keeping casual contributors away, yes.  As well as reducing the work
load of the list moderators, of course. I am not convinced it is smart,
but given that I do not have the capacity to revitalize the Cinelerra-CV
project, I do not see myself in a position where protest is useful. :)

Happy hacking
