Afaik this sort of confirmation works automatically - people get an
autoreply that they have to reply in return to have their post posted.
This is like every non-subscribed user moderating his own posts. This is
a nuisance the people who do not wish to subscribe should have to bear.
Since spammers, especially those who use automatic tools, usually don't
reply to these autoreplies, their spam won't get through.

The caveat, though, is that some virii and mostly all spammers forge
their sender/From address, which might make this automatic system
actually spam people who have nothing to do with all this, in case the
forged address is a valid one. I believe some intelligent filtering in
advance should be able to prevent this, though.
