The best solution would be to stop these spams getting in in the first
place. I remember a while back there was a plan to do something about it,
like only allow subscribed members to post or have a twit filter or
something? I digest this list & just about every time there is at least one
of these messages shoved in the middle.

Is there still a plan to fix this one day? I already unsubscribed once but
came back when the list manager said he was going to get it fixed.
