Regardless of the specifics of this case, I think a good rule would be to
say that all bounced messages on any IETF list MUST be archived on a
separate 'bounced' list. To whom would this suggestion best be directed?

Once again: Bush is (1) subjecting a huge number of legitimate messages
to manual review and (2) silently discarding many of these legitimate
messages, apparently at a rate of hundreds per year (not counting mine).
Both #1 and #2 are unacceptable. I want the manual reviews _eliminated_.
If a message isn't posted immediately, it must be bounced, with a clear
explanation of how to have it posted without Bush's intervention.
If the IETF documentation doesn't make sufficiently clear that Bush's
behavior is unacceptable, that documentation also has to be fixed.
