Yes, I also noticed this. A mail (actually it's a news posting for me)

I read this list and write to it via so I would like to ask if
it's possible to make mails coming from automatically mark as
subscribed. Gmane users must follow a TMDA-like procedure before their
mails will be sent through the gateway to the list. Thus I believe there
isn't coming spam from the gateway to the list.

Huh? I read some very high traffic mailing lists which use SA as spam
filter and there mails reach the list much faster.
