Sorry, that's not quite right.

Currently, moderation is keyed on whether one is a subscriber or not.

Oliver is working on implementing the "moderate only emails with a
medium spam score" functionality, has rolled it out to the internal
infrastructure/testing list, and expects that it will be rolled out to
-workers@ and -users@ before long.  However, when all is said and done,
that hasn't happened yet.

Apologies on my behalf for the mistake.
