    You could also put them in a manual hold queue. Give a large number of
    people ability to approve posts from that queue so latency would be
    reasonable.

    The problem with confirmation is that a person might fire off a bug report
    where they happen to be, via something like

    dmesg > foo
    joe foo
    cat foo + mail -s "Bug report blah blah" linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org

    A confirmation sent to the source address of that might not be noticed until
    the next time they happen to log into that account on that machine.

    You could do both, I guess. A hold queue that can be manually processed with
    confirmation posting the message and removing it from the hold queue.
