[Mailman-Users] Silently discarding non-member posts

I run several mailing lists, all of which have posting restricted to 
members only, some of which require approval for subscriptions and one of 
which is moderated (requires posts to be approved). This means there are 
quite a lot of administrative requests to be dealt with every day.

One thing that makes all this more awkward to deal with is the number of 
non-member (spam) posts that end up in the admin queues waiting to be 
discarded. As I only ever want to discard them, never forward them, approve 
them or reply to them, I would prefer them to be silently dropped by 
Mailman without them ever reaching the admin requests queue. However, I 
can't find any way in the configs to do this. Am I missing something, or is 
there an undocumented feature that will allow this? Or is it simply not 
possible with Mailman? (in which case, I'm going to have to go back to 
Majordomo, which does allow non-member posts to be silently discarded).
