Fwd: Please confirm your message

I believe that it is inappropriate to use such an email system that does this 
when sending messages to the BTS.

Also anyone who wants to use such a system when posting to a popular mailing 
list (such as debian-devel) should first put in place a white-list of people 
who regularly post to the list (such as me).

For reference, I will not reply to such a message, but I will consider putting 
the entire domain in my spam filter if such messages continue.

The URL did not make this license adequately clear to me.

Does this specifically differ from the license of Qmail?
