As regards mailing lists managed by Mailman, an alternative to avoid the
problem is by including the bug reporter into the accept_these_nonmembers
list.  According to the Mailman documentation:

    accept_these_nonmembers (privacy): List of non-member addresses whose
    postings should be automatically accepted.

This is what I do for all the mailing lists I administer at Alioth.  It
is just two-clicks away in the moderator web interface of Mailman 2.1.5.
