My solution to one-stop mailing lists is currently at
It's a Web interface, which unfortunately adds ease-of-forging, but we're

The FIDO tangent:
Speaking of the Libertarians... (who have a semi-active Fidonet community)

comes out of Fidonet from a bbs user, the "from" address is the name of
the fido area, so it shouldn't cause any problems with restrict_post.
Does that make sense?
