I think it would be helpful to clarify this in the list documentation.
Right now there's a bunch of conflicting information.

https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/bitcoin-dev states:

"*Greylisting Notice*
Your first post to this list may be delayed by 5+ minutes due to Greylisting
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greylisting>. Subsequent posts should go
through without delay."


"Everyone starts moderated, and the mod bit gets cleared as they post. It
gets set again if someone notices or reports a violation."
