Ok, so my impression is:

1) There is a problem with moderation and/or censorship here;
2) Users are disenfranchised and take the law in their own hands.

Uhmm... it's not a good sign, is it?

It is not a law.

The list owner (that's the proper name here) was asked to control a
situation that was very bad, stop a bad flame war, out of control. To
moderate. He doesn't have the time nor resources to moderate all email,
nor the intention to do so (it would be akin to censorship). So he just
signals for moderation certain posts on certain criteria. Unfortunately
he still can not read those few posts immediately.

The filter and the moderation is not a "law", nor the goal. The goal is
to avoid insults. If we edit a subject line to thwart a filter, but we
don't badly insult each other, my guess is that he will be happy and
perhaps not even comment on it. After all, I have known him for years :-)

So we are within the spirit of the "law" :-)
