I've started changing the subject lines, but keeping the auto-discard at
the end of it so it will be clear the post did not come from me.
(Redirecting rather than forwarding doesn't work because the list sees the
non-subscribed address and bounces it again.)

Almost all these senders know membership is required. They have merely
posted from a different address than the usual one, an address that is not
subscribed. I've been known to do that myself. :)
