    I think spammers are ramping up their attacks.  

I'm not actually sure it's much different than it's been; maybe we're
just noticing more.  I say that because these "advanced" attacks are
apparently coming through Usenet.  Well, until perhaps a year ago, every
Usenet post automatically sailed through mailman with zero moderation or
anything else.

    1. *ALL* mail would need to be moderated.  Currently subscriber email

That's utterly untenable!

One thing that I do think would help is for mailman to show not just the
sender and subject, but also the first couple of (non-quoted) lines of
the message.  It's equally untenable to examine each and every held

Anyway, all kinds of things could be done, as you write, but are the
mailman developers working on anything?  I hope so, but I don't know and
don't have a good enough grasp on anything to bring it up with Barry et al.
