I'm not sure who approves non-subscribed emails right now - at a guess
there's only one person and possibly not anyone right now. You haven't 
been singled out for (lack of) attention - I'm sure all emails are being 
ignored equally.

Last seen Joe was back in education doing an MSc, he's also one of the 
FreeBSD committers and does scary things with CVS.

My guess would be yes, but I'll leave it to Joe to answer that one for
definite. If he's making any money from it at all I'd be surprised if he
covers the costs of running it.

Well, filtering out will almost certainly reduce the
level of spam from the list by something in the region of 100%. 
Unfortunately, it'll also reduce *all* mail from the list by 100%[1] as it's 
the primary mx for (and I'm pretty sure he's not charging us
any money to do that :-)


[1] Assuming we also block the backup mx entries as well of course, for
    those of you feeling picky :-)
