spam and unsubscribed users

Is anyone aware of a solution which would allow the
mail-to-news-gateway folks to still post while blocking the
unsubscribed spammers? Presumably not....

It is possible to subscribe to the list and then set a Mailman option
to disable mail sending, so you have subscriber status without
actually getting any email. I just did that, so if this message
reaches the list, using Gmane is still possible for subscribers.
