Especially since there are some very aggressive anti-spammers lurking
about on various mailing lists like this, and they may well add you
to a blacklist just because you say that you're running a mailing
list that doesn't do confirmation. And it will be virtually
impossible for you to get yourself removed from many blacklists like

Inded, Kalin -- be very, very careful.
I'm sorely tempted to submit you to some blacklists myself, and I
know that I'm not the most violently aggressive anti-spammer around.
