Are you really sure that there are any reasons to permit posting
from accounts that are _not_ subscribed to the list? And if so - not
to restrict those to a group of just few, automatically moderating
out any other? I personally do not see any and I believe this is what
the whole problem is about. And in listar, this is controlled by
(surprise!) _one_ configuration variable (and perhaps some |DIAGNOSTIC|
subscriber flags). I doubt it is more complicated in whatever-sort-

I'm not talking about any restrictions here. I'm talking about simple
countermeasures that would help to keep spam away from this list.
Open posting lists are now anachronism and it would be nice if
administrators of _this_ list finally realized this. I'm afraid that
for now on-topic/spam ratio for it is less than 1 which means that
the list simply dies.

And BTW - I'm sending this from yet another account that for sure
is not subscribed. See? Shall I try 'mrspammer@spam.spam.com' next

Or... am I missing something?
