On all the lists I run and participate in you only turn
moderation on by default for new list members and put 
known bozos on permanent moderation.

The result is zero delay as soon as new list subscribers
have produced their first non-spam non-bozo post.

I already do, but content producers typically don't bother
and vote with their feet. I have seen many communities die
in that manner. Never surprising, still always sad.
