Well something that usually can be done with mailing lists to stop spammers is
to enforce subscribers-only posting. Where, obviously, only subscribers
can post to the list. Quite often spammers don't bother to take the time
to subscribe to a list before they spam it. Course it can cause a little
more work for the list administrators, because if folks modify their
e-mail (or more likely their site changes something), then you'll have
people complaining about how they can post to the list anymore.
