Further to a motion passed at the AGM, posts to ILUG from non
subscriber addresses will now be moderated, in the interests of
killing the last vestiges of spam to the list.
What this means is that any email sent to the list from an address
which is not subscribed to the list is held in a queue for moderation
by our team of volunteer moderators (I guess we have enough for the

Other options such as closing the list to non-subscribers have been
rejected by the membership and will NOT be considered so please don't
waste everybody's time.
