A lot of mailing lists use a confirmation email with basic rules and tips
Eg. Links to FAQs, MAQs, instructions on how to post etc
I know all about the argument against subscription only posting, but it
should still be open to debate, especially as it raises its head so often
under different guises

Easily gotten around when you subscribe. A confirmation mail is sent with
the TOS. The joining of the mail list then could be considered as acceptance
of the TOS. Although, this does raise an interesting point, If one were to
use such a TOS, this could be considered something akin to an EULA which
although not applicable to software many not be considered a good partner
for the GPL. I am only thinking aloud here thought.
