Quoting Bobbie Sellers (bliss at sfo.com):

That is indeed unfortunate, but the reason that happened is that you
weren't being very clear.

To repeat, what's 'the contact list' in this context?  Does that refer
to the SF-LUG mailing list's subscription roster?

What does 'some systems' refer to in this context?  The software that
operates the mailing list?

I'm guessing yes to both.  I'm guessing what you want, but haven't 
clearly articulated, is that you desire to use
bliss-sf4ever at dslextreme.com as an alternate posting address.

Simple:  Subscribe bliss-sf4ever at dslextreme.com via
http://linuxmafia.com/mailman/listinfo/sf-lug .  Then, you will be able
to post from either address.

That gives you _two_ subscriptions, so you will probably want to
set one of them to subscription option 'nomail' so you don't get two
copies of every posting.

Yes, you are correct that pretty much _all_ (not just 'some') Internet
mailing lists now accept postings only from subscribed posting addresses.  
This is a natural consequence of the spam problem.  So, subscribe the
addresses you wish to be able to post from.
