FWIW, we've long had this policy on the Mailman wiki.  It was the only
successful way to control spam.  Sign up is open (and yes, we occasionally
have to delete profile spam), but folks have to email the mailman-cabal to
request write/edit access.  We don't get a lot of such requests, so the
process is quite manageable, and we get almost zero spam now.
