stds-802-16-tg2: new anti-spam policy on 802.16 reflectors

The 802.16 reflectors have been suffering from a rising level of spam.

I have finally decided that spam filtering based on keywords is a 
losing battle. While my filters trap a lot of spam, far too much gets 
through. I have therefore moved the lists to restricted-post 
configuration, in which only subscribers may post. I had been 
avoiding this because, unless you post from the same address with 
which you are subscribed, your message will bounce. I know that many 
of us use multiple email addresses and don't want to have to remember 
which one they need to use for posting. However, the continuing spam 
assault is forcing my hand.

On an unrelated note, I have also terminated the following ancillary 
802.16 email reflectors:

This leaves 802.16 with the following reflectors:
*stds-802-16            Working Group
*stds-802-16-mobile     TGe (Mobile Wireless MAN [802.16e])
*stds-802-16-tg1        TGC (Conformance, 10-66 GHz [1802.16.1, 1802.16.2])
*stds-802-16-tg2        TG2 (Coexistence [80216.2a])
*stds-802-16-tg3        TGd (System Profiles, 2-11 GHz [802.16d])

To join (or unjoin) any of them, see <>.

I may further consolidate the reflectors in the future.
