Why o why o why can't the piclist be run on some other listserver
application, so that some filtering can be implemented? Like
1 Do not allow postings from anyone not subscribed to the list
2 Filter and process unsubscribe (and unscribe:-)) commands
3 Filter out off-topic messages so that users can SET OFFTOPIC OFF
4 Filter out messages that score too high on
- CAPITAL LETTERS
- Exclamation marks!!!!!!
- Sequences like "easy business", "network marketing",
"make $*/week", "move all names in the list up", "in your spare time"
"completely leagle" (sic) etc. etc.
The server could then reply with a helpful message (sO tHAT mIGUEL
cAN rEPOST hIS mESSAGES). I'm sure that writing a listserver application
shouldn't take more than a few days, really.
