>It's come to my attention that some of the WG mailing lists don't
>allow posts from people who aren't on the list.
>This is not an acceptable policy for IETF WG lists. It's important to
>allow people who aren't subscribed to the list to make suggestions
>or ask questions. It's also important to allow cross-postings
>between lists where a single topic is of interest to multiple

>There are other ways of effectively blocking spam besides
>blocking postings from non-subscribers.
>Lists that do this need to be fixed asap.
