I don't see why not. Anyone can set up a private email account.
Perhaps an email can be sent out on subscription saying that you are not
to post advertising to the list, including advertisements in your
signature, and that offenders will be initially reminded of the rule,
and eventually unsubscribed if they persist.
This may seem unfair on individuals, but allowing this to get through to
the list is unfair to all subscribers to the list. So this policy would
be for the greater good.
All mailing lists have rules, don't they? This one is not that harsh.
