Agreed.  Curiously, though, I've always gotten notifications whenever
any of my messages got held up for moderator approval.  Seems like there
are two questions for Marc here:

1.  Why is the system failing to notify some people about their messages
being delayed?

2.  Shouldn't the filter patterns be tightened up considerably?  For
example, I consider it sheer folly that I cannot use the word "c*ncel"
in a Postgres discussion group without my posting being held up for
several days.
