I usually make my first post to the lists I am on, so that is not a
problem.  The issue crops up when people reply to my initial
cross-post.  I think it should be policy for admins to not even be
notified and merely drop the message.  If someone cares enough to post
to the list, they should sign up, however briefly.  This would also
solve "bad crossposting" issues...
