Notifications sent for moderated questions

After enabling moderation, I've observed that users receive notifications to responses to their subscribed questions while those responses are still in the moderation queue. Users are understandably confused when they attempt to view the response and find it is not present.

Can notifications be withheld until the post has been approved?

The moderation feature will be rewritten and improved quite soon and the old version removed, so sorry there won't be fixes of the existing implementation in this area.

Looking forward to it, thanks for the heads up.

Also an email needs to be sent to moderators so that they are notified when something goes into the moderation queue. This is a big problem as it is sometimes hours before one of us notices that a question is awaiting moderation. This is particularly frustrating for our trusted regular users whose messages are also held up; when it is the spammers we are really trying to catch.
