OK, situations like this should be avoided of course.

I have already a bunch of spam in the queue now  collected over the
last few hours :-)

This works.

Suggestion 1: if you have addresses you want to post from and which
you don't want to subscribe, I can add them in Mailman to not get them
dropped. But this offer is valid only for this grass-psc list.

Suggestion 2: put me in CC if you are unsure and I'll realize that it didn't
reach the list (I use filters to labels emails so I immediately see that the
grass-psc label is missing; double mails are automatically filtered). But
offer only valid for this grass-psc list of course.
