Both of these valid ideas can be integrated, for example with the holding
mechanism that Mailman has. However, before that, it would be useful if
someone counted how much spam there was and how much valid mail was from
non-subscribed addresses. Then it would be easier to decide whether it's
worth the effort to hold all posts from non-subscribers, or if it's better
to reject them, or to lower SA scores, or do nothing or something fifth.
