I wouldn't go as far as calling it "infuriating". A blog is not an
email; it's part of one's website. It's not at all unfair to have a
website be something that only you can talk on.

For comparison, I usually dislike moderated forums; however, my blog
comments have been implemented as a moderated system. This is mostly
done as a way to fight spam; however, if someone posts something on my
website that is either completely besides the point or that I seriously
disagree with, I will not hesitate to moderate it away.

My blog is my own; a mailinglist is not. That is the main difference.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
