Moderator comments are where the moderator chooses to “reject” the message and inform the person posting which his/her message was inappropriate. However, if a moderator wants to comment on accepted posts, the moderator may only do so via a follow-up post to the list. This is to avoid anonymously tagged-on text to posts. If a moderator has something to say to the list, they should (and can only) do so in regular posts. If you want to edit posts before sending them to the list, set up a moderated list with you as the only moderator. Into DIR/editor before the ezmlm-store(1) line, put a condredirect(1) line that redirects all messages with a SENDER other than you to your address. You can edit the contents ands repost, the message will pass condredirect(1), and hit ezmlm-store(1). You will be asked to confirm (needed to assure that nobody else can post directly) and when you do, the messages is posted.
Moderator comments for “reject(ed)” posts need to be enclosed between two lines (yes, the end marker is required), having ‘%%%’ starting on one of the first 5 positions of the line. If there are characters before the marker, these will be removed from any comment line that starts with the same characters (e.g. the characters before ‘comment2’ in the example below will be removed):
%%% comment %%%
> %%% comment > comment2 > %%%
%% COMMENT %%
%%% this is my comment %%%
ezmlm said>%%% comment ezmlm said>%%%
