Thanks Chuck. I don't believe it would be very difficult. One would set the
mailing list options in majordomo (or mailman, or other list management
programs) to not automatically approve new subscribers, but instead hold them
in a moderation queue. Each constituency would be able to have someone in the
moderation queue (moderation just for subscriptions, not for each actual
post!), and that person could verify whether a new subscriber was a
constituency member. If so, they'd approve that new subscriber.
One could have a separate process for "special" people, e.g. former Board
members, etc. (are Vint Cerf or Esther Dyson still following ICANN?) who wish
to stay involved or at least stay subscribed.
