I assume you are talking about NANOG.  That mechanism only exists so that
the nanog "powers that be" can suspend people's posting privileges.

Anyone who is subscribed to a list should be able to post to it.  If
additional people want to post to a list without subscribing it should be
fairly trivial to add them to a whitelist.
