And that's something there's no absolute answer to.
Not only does RW, as I said in my earlier post, accept a range of behavior,
but also each list has its own personality and some require more "sitting
on" than others.
Some lists you don't have to say a peep, and folks there "get it." Other
lists, loosen control just a little and you have a list full of virus
hoaxes, recipes for clam chowder, genealogical postings wildly off topic
(i.e., "Great Smith resource here" posted to Jones-L or "Look at all these
Australian records" posted to Quebec-L), jokes, and political commentary.
So allowing for variances in admin personality and their knowledge of their
list there's a pretty wide range. Egregious offenses should go to HelpDesk;
even though it's unlikely that any action will be taken on a specific
complaint, if you have an admin who is truly out of line it is the
accumulation of complaints over time that will have an effect.
