Second that. Non-member postings should be approved. On a mailing list I run I
take the extra step and flag all new members as moderated, until they post
something that isn't spam. Usually the first post will be spam, or will be
legitimate. I approve the poster after the first post if it's legit, or
remove them from the list if it's spam. This stops spammers from subscribing
to the list with a throwaway account and spamming anyway.
