of course this technique is limited, or costly, as it gets rid of the
offending address<s> or subject's, and yet, requires all those responding
to these lame spams to be blackholed too.  Like the one responded to here.
Procmail, while a decent tool does not eliminate the issue in total, that
requires the list maintainers to take action.  Even an unmoderated list
requires some filtering of abusers.  Otherwise, what good is a list
