reflectors should be open to use by persons who are not members of T11 or 
other standards bodies.

I would suggest the following changes to the configuration of standards

2. Use the available feature in Majordomo that sends a message to the 
subscribers email address.  This message must be returned before a 
subscription is activated.

3. Turn off the Majordomo feature that allows a user to examine the 
subscriber list.
