listadmin?, I will look into that one.

Well, why not.  Very well, an off-topic post here and there is much better
than bouncing, IMHO.

This is also true of this list, but nobody asked for whitelisting yet.
Margarita was whitelisted by me just in case after her post bounced, but she
never asked for such whitelisting.

If you mean the off-topic messages, I have no issues with letting that

If dropping the off-topic rule means you will moderate the list, then please
send me a gpg-signed message, and I will reply with the moderator password,

I'd like to have one or two more moderators if at all possible, though.
Just in case.
