Both of my lists are VERY small; and they are both private and restricted.
Since I do my mail reading on-line, it's pretty simple for me to cut
addresses and paste into the RootsWeb Utility page as appropriate. I
suspect this might get to be a chore if I were getting 10 or 20 (or more)
subscribe messages a day.
As for people sending messages that should be private - can't help you
there. Education of what you (as list owner) consider appropriate to post
would be the only out other than suspending a subscription or two 'til
folks figured it out.
