Could I suggest using a robomoderator to do most of the moderating?
There is a PERL script floating around that automatically passes any 
post by an approved poster.  Only new posters have to be hand moderated.
It also supports a "deny_user" file that will automatically reject the
posts of any particularly bad actors.  The software is called PGPMoose,
and it assigns a PGP signature to all posts.  A companion piece of
software, CancelMoose, cancels any post without a valid PGP signature.
