I instituted a subscriber-only posting policy on the zope at zope.org list at 
the end of last week (friday afternoon), and haven't encountered any 
problems with it.  In the process we learned that gmail postings are *not* 
inhibited (to the contrary, gmail postings circumvent the policy, for 
which we'll have to compensate), and that the policy generally works quite 

The rejection message on these lists includes hints about why the message 
got rejected and how to enable posting from alternate addresses, so 
legitimate posters should have recourse if they need it.  However, let me 
know if you get stuck with problems.

On tuesday i started to apply the policy to all the applicable lists i
manage, and recommend it for all zope.org lists.

Death to spam.

     I hate spam just as much as the next person, but I must admit,
     without it I wouldn't be the horse-sized love stud that I am. Thanks
