I can understand why some of the OpenBSD lists accept mail from
non-subscribers. That policy is absolutely mandatory for bugs@; a
necessary evil for misc@; and probably a technical requirement for
ports@ what with the various automated posts. But I would think
that advocacy@, at least, could do quite well if mail from
non-subscribers got bounced with instructions to subscribe, first.
I've personally stopped spam by rejecting mail from anybody whom I
don't already know is okay. The bounce includes a pointer to a Web
form to get through to me. It's worked well: I don't get spam, and
once or twice a month somebody uses the form. So far, everybody
who's used the form has been legitimate, and I haven't heard any
complaints. (Yes, I realize that the complaint would have to come
via means other than email, but that's fine: anybody who is so
clueless they can't figure out how to use a Web form, call me, or
send me a letter isn't somebody I want complaining at me.)
