And thus the ABSENCE of other people from the 'restrict_post' list
DISALLOWS their posting...

All solved by 'restrict_post'. Simply point it at a file (perhaps the
list file itself, or even another "hidden" list file so that you can
"subscribe" posters via e-mail, or just an ordinary non-list file that
you manually edit) and enter only those addresses you want to allow to
post. Posts from anyone not in that list will be bounced to the list
owner for approval or "other action" (including non-action).
Note that if the 'restrict_post' file is *not* a list but is in the
lists directory, it should contain a '.' (or other non-alphanumeric,
non-hyphen, non-underscore) character in the name so Mj doesn't think
it's a list. Relative file names (i.e. don't begin with '/') are assumed
to be in the lists directory.
