I'm not entirely comfortable with blindly white-listing anyone who posts to linaro-dev with something that doesn't look like spam, for several reasons:
- That is not a great way to run a moderated mailing list.
- IT aren't going to be in the best position to say whether or not the
sender should�be able to send to linaro-dev, even if they didn't send spam.
Why do we want to block anyone from linaro-dev unless they are spamming (which would include being too-far off-topic)?
Arguments about the admin load of moderation, or the difficulties of spam-filtering accurately on an open list, I can understand; but the idea that this list should be restricted to only suitably enlightened people by default seems wrong to me. It should be as open as we can practically make it, shouldn't it?
