That's not necessarily inconsistent. A subscription would be approved, with "approval" connoting a more active action than accept.

OTOH accept/reject for a message makes sense since the moderator is allowing the message ("accepting") for distribution, but that doesn't mean the moderator agrees with it's contents, only that it meets whatever guidelines the moderator is using.

approve 1. officially agree to or accept as satisfactory.
accept 1. consent to receive (a thing offered).
