One of the wonderous things about computing is the distributed nature of
it.  By spreading the work across many hands, the job is easy to do.
Yet, what you are suggesting is that Len et. al. do all the work, while
the people who get bugged by certain posts do none.

A much better suggestion would be, "Learn how to use filters".  The
people subscribed to this list are *assumed* to have at least a
tangential interest in security.  Given that, one would *think* that
they have at least enough capability to set up a simple mail filter
(pick your poison, your choice of OS) that would eliminate the noise and
still give them what they want.
