It is.  In fact, 3 emails were posted in between those two you mention
that weren't distributed (and in other lists, many many more are quietly
rejected every day).  The trouble is that these two posts were made from
addresses that had been previously subscribed to some lists and had been
taken over by bots; so the messages weren't held for moderation.  I
removed the addresses from the register, so it shouldn't happen again
from those two addresses.  Of course, there are others :-(
