List membership is easy to spoof anyway.  The only way to control
traffic to your list is to moderate it.

Moderate the GMane subscription.

GMane has a bad reputation around here for not respecting the wishes
of list owners.  It's very convenient for your users, but if you allow
GMane to gateway to your list, you are at their mercy.

I don't have strong anti-GMane feelings myself; I consider it a
valuable service to my lists.
