I disagree. Moderation is the only way to stop this channel being
filled with diatribes and I'm glad that the moderator(s) are being
reasonable enough to let the better emails through.

I'm absolutely disgusted by this authoritarian behaviour. talk-au isn't
being moderated, it's clearly being politically censored.

It makes me want to give up contributing to OSM (something I'm still
actively doing).

Please keep me/us informed.  I'm not sure what we can do by way of
non-destructive protest.  Just ceasing to contribute isn't anywhere near
enough in my opinion.
