I can tell for my own case (admin for -web, -marketing and -artwork).
Mailman "usability" is part of the problem here. I used to moderate at
the start, and after some time, I just considered filtered mail to be
rejected/ignored by default, leaving to the sender the effort to
figure out how to subscribe and post to the list.

The default should be that: mailing from outside the list should be
allowed, or moderating an incoming message should be dead easy (such
as activating a link + confirm).
