But Mailman is generating a `your message is pending approval because
you're not subscribed' email at the moment, isn't it?  So changing
policy from `hold' to `bounce' won't be creating more emails back to the
OP, just altering what kind they get.

I'd vote for bounce with a `you must be subscribed'.

As someone who administers two Mailman lists, one of them on SourceForge
which means an old and clunky Mailman interface, I sympathise.
