I read many mailing lists (this one, for example) without being
subscribed as a member.
An automated message saying "Your post to the list, unlike many
others, will be delayed until a human acts" tells me that I shouldn't
get anxious at the non-appearance of my message on the list. Without
such a message, many people would believe their message was eaten
somewhere, and post it again and again.
