:I really really think we should leave the bugs list open for *ANYONE*
:to post.  FreeBSD shut down the PR submit list using a draconian
:method and I think that was a very bad move, not that bugs@ is the
:same as pr@ was but its close enough that it shouldn't be restricted
:on posting...

    Well, theoretically I could CC the validation request to the moderator
    (which is me), which would allow me to catch bug reports from people
    who specify non-existant return addresses, but I have no idea how much
    traffic that would end up generating to me... I think it would probably
    be too much of a burden.  The NNTP group is free and clear, so the only
    people who we wouldn't get postings from would those posting directly
    to the bugs@ list with a bad return address.

    I could delay turning on non-scriber validation on the bugs@ list but
    I really don't think the list will be safe for long (if it even is now).
