I am answering multiple post with this one message:
-> I think it is a good idea to put new members on 'probation'. Once
they posted a couple times, they will be set to unmoderated (Haven't
tried it yet, but our mailing list software should be able to do this).
-> I can filter based on 'subject'. This should help with vacation
messages. However, understand that you will still get the occasional
vacation message as you post to the list. Some 'vacations systems' will
reply to the poster, not to the list. But well, this is what email
filters are for.
-> Of course, in the past I usually had to moderate regular subscribers
;-)... I will turn moderation back on if it is a problem (or at least
put these users back into the newbie bin)
-> Ever since I restricted posting to subscribers, I didn't see spam or
viruses hit the box. One reason I automatically reject posts from
non-members is that we got much more spam/viruses then posts. There is
maybe one vacation message a day that I have to reject.
-> I think I will discontinue the 'current' list. It is not getting any
-> IRC: if someone sets up a channel and advertises it here, its fine
with me. But I will not 'endorse' it as I don't have the time to monitor
it. Past experience shows little interest in online chat.
