Are you saying that letting unsubscribed users post to a mailing
list breaks rules?

it breaks rules. Believe me, during my last 6 years in the project, I received so many requests by people who 
"accidentially" posted to mailing lists, without knowing what they
are, and then afterwards wanting to have removed their data from
within Google, the archives and the like. Each such requests costs
tens of minutes of work. In contrast, telling people how lists work,
what they do, what they are for, is a one-time job, and they need 5
minutes of time to subscribe.


It is a simple matter to provide a 'bounce' email automatically sent to
non-subscribers who attempt to post to a list, that contains detailed
information about LibO support options (mail lists, forums, etc)... but
this would require a change in the website to provide a 'Support' link
page to link to (please, please separate it out from the 'Contribute'
