    Not sure what your list software supports but how about holding
    non-subscriber email for moderation?

    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.

    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.
