Is this newsgroup managed?

Hello,

Just wondering if anybody here knows if any MVP or Microsoft employee reads
the messages posted to these newsgroups before they are published. Is the
content of messages posted here evaluated for appropriateness before the
messages are let into the public domain?

Thank you,

As far as I know, there's no moderation before publication, but
Microsoft has some form of monitoring which can remove (some) spam
afterwards.

In addition to what Jon said, the newsgroup _is_ "monitored" in the sense
that MSDN subscribers posting questions here using their registered MSDN
email address will have a Microsoft employee respond to such questions.
