I used to really favour having it open, particularly as the closed
mailing list often was a sign of a closed development community (and
made cross-posting, say with OpenLDAP, more difficult). 

But things are getting worse on the SPAM front, despite the magnificent
efforts of our spam-detection software, and I reluctantly agree.
