Looking into this, I see that your postings were automatically rejected
as non-members are not allowed to post to the list.

That would be very nice.  I see gmane do it, so there's probably a way,
and I could do it if the owner said "I indend to keep this list
exclusively to members" but I'm afraid people will change their minds
and I'll be stuck spending five minutes a day changing whether a group
is moderated or not.  If this could be automated I would do it right

Any thoughts?  Perhaps we could make a shell script that toggled
moderation and have list-owners use it?
