I believe there is auto-moderating software out there. Such software can be configured to, say, take all messages posted to sci.math and then based on various filters repost the approved messages to something like sci.math.moderated. Googling on this topic and I find that an example of such a "robot moderator" is STUMP. http://www.algebra.com/~ichudov/stump/
Personally, I am not sure if that is worth it since most of the crap posted to sci.math are from a small handful of well known crazies that can be killfiled in a sraightforward way.
