So just to be clear, putting a damper on this at this point requires
_only_ that posts from yahoo.com be blocked from posting to a list.  Is
this correct?  This can be done by selectively unsubscribing (or
moderating) current yahoo.com users and adding "^.*@yahoo\.com" to the
ban_list of addresses banned from membership going forward.  Should some
other ESP start publishing advisory DMARC records then said ESP would
need to be added to the ban_list as well.

Am I correct in this?
