Hi Dennis,

Actually not, if the sender is not subscribed to this list a post will
reach the moderator's inbox as with any post from a non-subscribed user.
Note that the From address is still individual and not some gmane
address. Some people just prefer to read mailing lists in a newsreader
even when subscribed to the list.

The mangled subject seems to be due to the mail address being part of the subject. Gmane mangles mail
addresses for spam protection, but apparently fails to unmangle it in
a subject line of a reply. Usually mail addresses are not part of
a subject, so I consider this a one-time annoyance.


 PGP/OpenPGP/GnuPG encrypted mail preferred in all private communication.
