W3C recently seems to have had some success with this headache by
requiring for each of its public lists that a subscribed poster at
the time of his first post (after the new policy), which is returned
without distribution to the list, agrees to permanent public archiving
for all of his subsequent posts to the list.

I can only speculate privately as to why this might be a deterrent.
