[Mailman-Users] A newsgroup security question

Someone, some spammer low-life, sent a spam to a mailing list I host
that is a ported usenet newsgroup.
Of course, a spamcop unloaded on my ISP who unloaded on me.
The last time I went down this road, I was told that I couldn't setup
security on a ported mailing list so that only the subscribers to my list
and the newsgroup itself could send messages to and from the mailing
list and newsgroup. If course, that was in 2.0.X days.
I just upgraded to 2.1.1, and it looks pretty cool (now that I created the
undocumented mailman mailing list).
However, the options that control newsgroups don't look any different
than they did.
Is there a way to tighten up this security? While it is true that anyone
on the whole net can spam Usenet, it's also true that if your server is
caught doing it, you catch hell....
