Well, for at least two of my lists I had to shut the door for
non-subscribers... I had advertised them in the list-of-lists several
years ago (and have subsequently removed them :-) and made myself a nice
target for the ad-mongers. They'd simply send advertisements to the list
upsetting all my list members... so I shut that door.
It didn't really create any problems when I changed the list configuration
to not allow "non-subscribers" to post (yuck, almost reads as a
double-negative)... anyway, it did, though, alert me to all the users who
subscribed one address but post from others. For example, someone sub's
their home address, but on a whim, trys to post from work... there's other
examples that fit this too.
Just my small world worth of drivel...
