What is an eGroup?
An eGroup/eList is a way for individuals who share a common interest to come together through discussion to exchange thoughts and ideas on the given subject matter.
Some eGroups/eLists are moderated and some are not.
What is a moderated eGroup/eList?
This is where the owner/s and/or moderator/s approve or otherwise posts made by it's members. There are many reasons why this may happen. One could be to ensure there is no posting of anything inappropriate and to keep the eGroup/eList focused on its subject matter. Another might be to stop 'SPAM'.
If you belong to a moderated eGroup/eList your post will not appear until it has been read by the moderator and approved. If the post is inappropriate then the post will be deleted, never to be seen by anyone on the list. The opposite to this is of course an eGroup/eList which is not moderated where the post will appear a few minutes after posting. Those eGroups/eList which are not moderated and do not have an active team of moderators more often then not suffer from SPAM. Once SPAM starts to attack such a group, members usually leave and the eGroup/eList simply dies away from its original purpose.
