Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Posting to a mailing list without subscribing
== Posting to a mailing list without subscribing ==
Subscribing is not strictly necessary to send emails.
Your post may be significantly delayed if you are not subscribed though. E-mails from addresses which are not subscribed to the list are held for moderator approval before they are posted.
|The mailing lists are conduits for an amazing number of spam attempts. To protect list subscribers we require that people be subscribed to the list before they can post. Also be aware that you have to be subscribed with the address you post from. This catches some people because we live in a world where a lot of us have multiple email addresses we juggle (or a mail server might rewrite your from address on the fly.) In addition, new subscribers start out as moderated to catch situations where people sign up for the sole purpose of posting spam (which happens a lot on the forum as well.)
The list forum admins try to catch legit postings by new users to forward them along, and we try to manually unmoderate legit email address as we see them. But because of the high volume of spam that attempts to flow through the mailing lists, sometimes the legit stuff gets missed in all the noise.
