There's more than one way to do it ...

If you want a default closed list, you may set all new members to be
moderated (1). If you already have a list and want it now moderated,
you can set all existing and all new members to moderated (2). And/or
you can use "emergency moderation" (3).

Hm. It was not a problem for me when I started to use Mailman some
month ago ...

Then don't let them use python regular expressions. :)

Sure. But it does not hurt, does it?
