Mailman supports multiple admins/moderators too.

And if someone on the list repeatedly posts from multiple addresses, a
list admin can add their alternate address to a list of non-member
addresses that are allowed to post without moderation.

As a list member, you can also take care of yourself: if you plan to
post from multiple addresses, you can subscribe each of those
addresses, and check the "Disable Delivery" option for all except one.
