>                 URL:
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Mailing Lists
>            Reporter: Sebb
>            Priority: Minor
> The sendsubscribertomod feature was recently added to deal with subscribers who sometimes
post inappropriate material.
> However these people have to be added to the list after they have posted some mails.
> It might be useful to implement a related feature: subscriber probation.
> The idea would be to add new subscribers to the sendsubscribertomod list.
> Their posts would need to be moderated until it was clear that they were abiding by the
rules, at which point they could be removed from the list.
> The advantage is that read-only users would not neet to be moderated at all, and initial
bad posts would not appear on the list.
> The disadvantage is that genuine subscribers would need to be moderated initially. However
if it proved feasible to check for a valid committer e-mail in LDAP first, this should reduce
the volume considerably.
