One caveat: when switching from SEND=PUBLIC to PRIVATE or EDITOR, please
realize that some subscribers who were previously sending and receiving
list postings, will now either "bounce" go through the editor.  Why?
because e-mail is NOT always symmetrical.  Thus a receiver can get
his/her mail properly forwarded at an address different from their
actual list subscription address.
 
Remedies: resubscribe the user, add a NOMAIL subscription, or be
  a defacto moderator.
 
BTW, I don't think the SEND=PRIVATE/EDITOR will help with NETNEWS
gateways i.e., a spam of Usenet groups bit.listserv.* (please correct
me if I'm wrong about this).
