Sorry about the duplicate post! (I thought the first one got lost, since I received a couple of posts that had been sent later.)
This will sometimes happen because I can't check my email for a while. Anyone who doesn't have a subscription to the list needs to be manually OK'd for posting every time they do it.
This technique blocks a LOT of spam to this list :).
If you (the plural "you", not just Steve...) post from a different email address than you read from, or the Sender: header from your mail is messed up for firewall reasons, then you can subscribe the address you send and set the "nomail" mailman option to have it never actually deliver any mail.
If you don't do this, then I'm going to have to keep manually verifying every post you write, and sometimes duplicates will go through. Lately the number of people I've had to do this for has decreased, but I still OK about 6 or 7 valid messages per week.
