Speaking of people not being on the list, I'd like to make a suggestion 
for the list administrator.

Pretty much all list servs come with sufficient functionality as to reject 
messages sent from addresses that are not subscribed to the lists in 
question (I run a number of majordomo lists configured exactly that way).

Given the spam that's come through the list lately (not much...but enough 
to be annoying), I think it safe to say that the members of the list, here 
assembled <wink>, would be fine with having the list configured so that 
only subscribed list members could submit messages to the list.
