It's not moderated, yet I see only very occasional spam here and when I
do, I add it to my filter list so I won't see anything from that source
again. As for the quietude, I think it's because most of the participants
have moved on to more targeted lists at the county or even town level.
These are on rootsweb rather than on Usenet and are mailing lists rather
than news groups.
