Note, that libvir-list requires senders to be subscribed before mails are
delivered, otherwise they go into moderation queue. My normal approach. as
the person moderating, is to whitelist all human senders who get moderated,
so it is only a one-time pain point per person.

Actually, the list bot is even more stupid than that - a first-time poster that subscribes first is STILL moderated (and sometimes you can see evidence of that when someone posts 2 or 3 nearly identical messages in a short time - first before subscribing, then again after, thinking that subscribing will make a difference). Whitelisting happens independently from subscription.

Thankyou spammers :-(

But also a hearty thank you to all list moderators that reduce the amount of spam actually making it to the list.
