Thus spake "Keith Moore" <moore(_at_)cs(_dot_)utk(_dot_)edu>
The list moderator asked him to add his email address to the list, and
indicated that as a result of doing so his mail would be unmoderated. Is
so hard to do?

frankly, it's ridiculous to expect people to subscribe to every list to
which they
wish to contribute.

Frankly, it's ridiculous to expect either (a) all WG members to receive
dozens of spams per day due to no filtering, or (b) the WG chair to read and
manually approve any emails (among the dozens of spams) which are relevant.

We have the least-bad technical solution in place today.  We'd all like open
lists, but the community's inability to control spam has made that a moot
