I agree. I don't know what our options are with this particular mailing 
list software, but generally my preferred setting is that non-subscriber 
messages get moderated.

If we started getting too much spam for that to work, I would support 
only allowing subscribers to post.

It could just be a temporary rash, but it's rare for spam levels to 
actually decrease for a given email address.
