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!!!!!!
    - $$$DOLLAR$$SIGNS$$$$
    - 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.
