Recently I've made the painful switch to using procmail and some rather 
elaborate rules to filter out most of the spam I receive.  I've also 
recently made a change to the 400+ person mailing list I run to exclude 
emails orginating outside of the distribution list (and four years ago we 
would never have thought of doing that).

However, I'm finding that while I enjoy lurking on this quiet list and 
reading the traffic coming down it, the spam is more frequent than the 
posts, and I'm tired of spam.

Is there any chance that the owner can switch this list to accept email 
only from a subscribed person?  If they can't/won't, I understand and I'll 
unsubscribe, but I'd rather not.

Thanks in advance,
