I don't mind doing that - it would mean that you much send to the list
from the address that you subscribed to, otherwise it will take a little
while longer for the post to arrive.  (If I'm on holiday for instance
then such postings won't get moderated until I'm back.)

I don't care much, because I'm receiving similiar spam to most of the
mailing lists that I'm on, so reducing the noice on this list won't make
a difference to me.
