I can confirm that this happens & annoys moderators.  Definitely not
leafnode's fault: astraweb, which I used to use as an upstream server,
misflagged (as 'y' instead of 'm') two moderated groups that I've used
and failed to do anything to correct it, even in response to proper
support tickets.

Am I mistaken in thinking it's an easy problem for a NSP to fix?

I haven't heard about this until now --- is it a common problem?
