the low level way of eliminating post requests is (at least for mailman

# su - mailman
$ python -i bin/withlist -l <listname>
Loading list: <listname> (locked)
>>> del m.requests['post']
>>> m.Save()
>>> <Ctrl+D>

don't try this without reading bin/withlist to understand what it does,
and it doesn't hurt to make a backup of mailman before you do it either.
