Drifting off-topic, but I think this is actually a subtle feature. I've often joined a mailing list to ask one specific question, and then seen questions that I can help answer.

Another feature/wishlist of MM3 is a reputation service where, let's say you've engaged with three lists on python.org. Each time you've had to do a email address confirmation dance, and get your postings moderated. Once you've done that a couple of times across a few lists (configurable via admin knobs), you're deemed a member of the site in good standing. Now you can post to any list that opts in with no further confirmations. If you game the system to spam, an admin can lower your reputation and then all your posts would be moderated or discarded.
I think a system like this would really make it very easy for users to have both long term engagements with some lists, and low-barrier short term drive-by engagements with others.
Stack Exchange works like that - if you're a member in good standing of another Stack Exchange site, your reputation starts at 100 rather than zero.
