Why isn't is possible to send a message to this list without being
subscribed to it? Here at work, several people are interested in the
linux mailing lists, so we decided to take one subscription under the
name "" and forward the messages to a local newsgroup.

This was found to be the only way to completely eliminate the
occaisonal linux mailing list spam postings we'd get now and then. I
am sorry, but this policy is necessary and it is going to stay.
