As already said, this sounds really complicated. Coming from an IRC
and vBB admin background, I'll suggest moderation using the reactive
approach instead of a automated process.

In the context of a ML, the signature could include a link with an
unique subscriber/msg hash that triggers an email to moderators only
if a threshold is reached. This limit actual moderation only to
threads/posts that are really offensive to the point people are
willing to actively flag it rather than rely on some automated process
to decide if something's really off-topic or offensive.
