Isn't this list moderated?

I don't think so. Especially considering how quick your message 
went through the list reflector. And especially with the 
statement from the list home page: "We will try to operate this 
list without moderation, as we feel moderation is an impediment 
to communication."

Why do all vendors suddenly want to spam us with tons of *useless*

Well, if you were running Caldera it wouldn't be that useless. 
Or if you didn't already read the message on bugtraq/caldera's 
announce list/etc.

And, of course, according to the list home page, the message is 
on topic:
     "This list is dedicated to full disclosure of any and all security
      issues. Please feel free to discuss anything related to security."
