I've got it figured out to have a way for OT: or YAK: to be filtered on 
a list that doesn't have any other topics. I set up 2 topics. The first 
one filters a simple space.

\ \|

The above topic is set to checked

  The second one filters OT/YAK

The above topic is set to unchecked

Then the option for;
"Do you want to receive messages that do not match any topic filter?"
Is set to "NO"

What happens with the above setup is that everything is sent except OT: 
or YAK:

Now, my biggest question is:

How can I set mailman to have the above settings set by DEFAULT for 
each user that is subscribing to the list? I found nothing in 
mm_cfg.py. I also looked around a bit, but did not find anything that I 
could modify for a default setting. If I can set these defaults, then 
my mail list subscribers will have little to do to set their topic 

Thanks in advance!
