Earlier, almost everyone seemed to be against moderation. Why the moderators should be given the task to keep track of members mail count. Can you (anyone) volunteer do it on the list itself?
Over few weeks, spammers will be banned, considering required votes are there, filters will be updated.

Number can be finalized over here. RFC is meant for discussions. In the
new system, it seems mods will not be decision makers. They are just
executors. In the current system, they also decide things for the list
as well execute decisions. In a free mailing list, they will just follow
the instructions from the list. Let the members decide their own freedom.
