about their subscription.
Not sure what your list software supports but how about holding
non-subscriber email for moderation?
> I hate giving in to the spammers and letting their abuse decrease the
utility of the list. I'd rather leave the list open and put more work into
spam protection or simply make the list moderated (which involves more work
for me and slower response times).
Anti-spam protection would be good. See my previous comment about

It's not a big problem yet because there isn't a huge volume of spam but
because there isn't much traffic in total it is quite annoying.
> If people want spam protection, does anyone want to volunteer to help me
moderate the list?
How would it work? Would there be a single moderator on duty at one time
or could many work together. As I use the software and haven't contributed
in any other way I would be happy to do my share of the moderation.
