[RCD] Update re: round cube lists.

Based on feedback, I am enabling subject tagging.  Subjects will
be prefixed by [RCD] or [RCU].  This is a fairly religious issue for some 
folks; but the those that need/want it tagged _far_ outweighed any other 
response I got.  I'm keeping the tag short, however, to try and minimize 
the effects for those that don't like subject tagging.  I wish this were a 
per user setting, but .. it isn't.

List signatures are still enabled but shorter.  I find them neccesary to 
help keep list management easier.  This also helps reduce the case of 
people getting tired of a list and just marking it as spam (Which can have 
effects further  than they intended).  Hopefully with a technical audience 
such as we have here, that won't happen, but..

Enforcement that posters be subscribed is now enabled.  Most of the other 
antispam things I do at gigo.com, are disabled for the lists.  If 
SpamAssassin still thinks "spam" the message might get deferred for 
moderator review.

Lastly, some folks are doing sender verification.  Because some folks 
still have DNS cached pointing to Bob's, and his would not verify the 
sender address I'm using, some folks are deferring (good) or rejecting 
(not so good) the mail.  I'll contact those people in a day or so, 
recommending they clear their sender validation cache and/or check their 
sender verification cache settings.

Unless anything else comes up, I'll move back to more of a lurker role.
If anything comes up, feel free to contact me, email or jabber.
