And, require someone to join the list prior to posting. I'm all for it
being as simple as possible, ie you send an e-mail message to the
list. you get  a bounce back telling you that you are posting to a
OPEN LIST that anyone can read and join, and that SPAM is not
tolerated. And if you understand these 'rulers' click <here> and you
will be subscribed to the list and your message will be posted.

This will solve a few problems:

One is the (granted, few) pump and dump spammers.
Two is the people who don't understand this is a list, and ANYONE can
join this list.

I recall a month of two ago someone was under the assumption his
questions for help were sent securely to a few 'high level developers'
and even threatened legal action if his posts didn't get removed from
any and all archives of this list.

If I remember he kept e-mailing (off list) one of the members
DEMANDING the member remove his posts.

Just my .02 :)
