    Hi Patrik,

    All of the mailing lists hosted by the PWG server were with _many_
    announcements after a long warning period closed to all non-subscriber
    postings last year, due to extremely high levels of spam (greater
    the valid postings to the lists). All subscribers were warned and the
    PWG site said as much on the Web pages.

    Whether the host of the PWG server (Lexmark) can provide software to
    send non-subscriber postings to a moderator and whether a moderator
    volunteer can be found for the IPP list remains to be seen...

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    This is not an acceptable practice. An IETF mailing list can not refuse
    postings "just by magic". Rejected messages must be forwarded to a human
    which makes a decision on whether the message should be approved or not.

    See http://www.ietf.org/IESG/STATEMENTS/mail-submit-policy.txt
