Thank you, that should improve things. I suppose a non-subcriber doesn't 
get a message they're in a moderation queue? I already have a few spam 
messages in my "moderation requests folder" so I guess this would amount 
to sending hundreds of replies to spammers...

The spam that currently entered my moderation request folder says things 

   Content preview:  Spam detection software, running on the system
   "alsa0.alsa-project.org", has identified this incoming email as
   possible spam.

    [ ... ]

    Content analysis details:   (10.4 points, 5.0 required)

and everything it so marked is quite obvious spam. To quickly moderate 
I'd believe these might as well just be discarded automatically, with 
only the ones that were refused just because of non-subscriber put on 
the moderation queue. I don't know mailman, but I suppose it should be 
able to do that?

If then after a while the spam filtering on alsa-project.org grows more 
effective and we see that we only/mostly get valid postings in the 
moderation queue, we can advice to open up again.
