I agree with Bellinda. 

The motivation here is understandable -- and as Richard Williams
suggested the person concerned may be following institutional 
policy or instructions. 

However, this boils down to someone, in effect, stipulating that
they want to be a member of the list, but on their own terms: 
namely, that posters to the list must all individually confirm 
to that someone that they are not spammers. 

In the limit, this kind of behaviour would mean
that each of us must send every message to a new recipient
_twice_, and I join firmly with Al Feiveson in just 
not wanting to do that. 

Incidentally, the message I am replying to got put in
a "Deleted" folder by my mailer, so the behaviour is
likely to be self-defeating anyway.
