What is ListFilter

  ListFilter is a system that's designed to make life easier for people who moderate mailing lists.

A mailing list lets a group of people with a common interest, exchange messages with each other. We will not provide you with a mailing list, but if you don't already have one, you can easily set one up at Topica, MSN groups or Yahoo groups for free. It only takes about 10 minutes. We recommend Topica since it has fewer ads. There are also many other mailing list systems, such as Majordomo, Mailman and ListServ.

Once you have an active mailing list, you'll discover the value of having a moderator. A moderator reads each message before it is broadcast to the whole group. The moderator can block spam messages, and other off-topic messages, put an end to flame wars etc. A human being usually acts as moderator, but you can save a lot of time by using ListFilter.
