Yes, that's a list setting - I set it so that if more than 10 lines are
quoted in a block, the message is set aside for moderation...

Please do keep quoting down to a minimum, remember that some of the
members here are in places where they have to pay for bandwidth by
connect time and/or bytes.

However, you're right that the auto message (which I wrote) is a little
misleading; the message wasn't rejected at all. I'll change that to be
worded better. As to the limit, I'll raise it to 12 lines to help a
little, but I'm not taking the limit off altogether...
