The buug at weak.org mailing list does block non-subscriber posts. 

However, the buug-admin mailing list does not. It will not and can not; we
need a general point-of-contact for our group.

Unfortunately, it appears that a great deal of semi-respectable companies
scan through the user group listings for email addresses and then spam them

Witness the UCE with the addresses of 20 or 30 user groups in the recipient

We do have a posted policy against UCE. It doesn't really help against people
who are using automatically generated lists.
