Subject [list admin] message moderation

Since the three of us (Andrew, Dianñna and myself) have relieved Giacomo 
from the cocoon- lists moderation drudgery, our lists are becoming 
'subscription-optional', in the sense of 'we moderate so fast that 
people don't bother their subscription status'.

I've changed my 'moderation policy' for non-spam mails today:

* I -allow and -accept genuine 'sideway-related' posts, like somebody 
from the Xerces list CC'ing cocoon-dev when discussing cross-project 
stuff, if I feel like the gal/guy won't bother subscribing anyhow. I 
generally only do this for * addresses

* I -accept real posts from non-subscribed people only once. When they 
persist in not being subscribing after my first manual moderation, I 
-reject the next mails they might send with the comment 'Please 
subscribe to the list prior to posting using'.

* I don't -reject spam but simply delete it. I assume ezmlm knows how to 
handle, and hopefully in a less encouraging way (like 'no mailbox by 
this name') rather than 'you need to be subscribed' (which seems 
slightly encouraging to me).

Any comments? Are Andrew & Dianna OK with this?
