[Novalug] [OT] 'Comment moderators' -- Mailing list or web-based?

I'm fully aware of Slash and CAPTCHA's. Like I said our software handles
pre-filtering (CAPTCHA and, text analysis). This is an estimated half
million comments a day throughput after filtering for bots and easily
Community filtering is not an option, as the community specifically is the
problem. This site has to absolutely remain as neutral as possible (not a
problem at Slashdot).
Think of this as an extremely public site, for a massive group of people,
that diservedly and undiservedly draws trememndous ire and distrust both
outside and inside of the operation of the site. Peak traffic is measured
in tens of thousands of hits per second, and user registration for
commenting is not currently an option on the table.
It's a tough problem, hence I was wondering if anyone had any experience
with services that claim to help in this area. It's possible we are
breaking new ground and nothing out there right now that can help.
How would you deal with it?
If the latter, then you probably ought to have investigated Slash, the
