    I could add such a filter fairly quickly.

    I guess I'm just looking at my Email box and at the number of SPAM 
  messages I, and the various lists I subscribe to, receive.  SPAM 
  filtering has become an almost full-time job.
Strangely enough, lynx-dev has been running open and we get some junk
posts from people who can't find ^G after they have stumbled into
send-a-comment mode; but the spam level has been real low.

So I don't think we need to be in a hurry to password protect
lynx-announce however it gets mechanized.
Even if we do eventually need to restrict posting to the
-announce list, the authorized posters don't need to mess with
passwords.  Bob can set the list to be members-only posting and
subscriptions-by-approval and the authorized posters will be all
that gets through Majordomo.
