Guys, how do we control who is subscribed? Like I am subscriber I can start
putting spam! Anyone can subscribe to our list, so disallowing from external
sources will not work, as the spammer can become member and spam. They may
flood the list before admin can take them out from the list. But yes! Spam
is becoming a much bigger issue here and we need to do something for this.
One bet is to disallow all the mails that are not in normal character set,
but that will limit even the normal subscribers from japan/russia and other
countries that have different character set. There gotta be a way to clear
up this mess.

Agreed. We can't seem to get the list managers to take action, though.

It seems to be a trend lately, I'm on a few lists that get spammed with
this bullshit.  I think the best bet would be to disallow mail from
people who aren't subscribed to the list.
