Is the list software clueful enough that it could be configured to start 
requiring subscriptions for @oracle.com posts, and to return a blurb 
about what they're doing wrong, and how to subscribe if needed?

Sure, they'll ignore it, but they ignore what they're told here anyway, 
at least it would automate the responses. I'm sure at least some will 
follow the link to subscribe and then whine about all the list traffic, 
but most will probably get frustrated and attack the problem internally 
before they hit the list.
