Here's a suggestion:

1) Only you have permission to post to the trn-announce list.

2) Redirect trn-users to a moderated list, set up volunteer team.

3) Trn-workers, only subscribers may post, bounce nonsubscribers to volunteer

4) New posting address for subscribers to trn-users that's unmoderated.

By moderating posts to trn-users, you maintain your objective of allowing
ordinary users to ask questions without subscribing first.
