[Theforum] Please, no more love tonight - spam on lists

On average, I receive 300+ spam emails a day through seven different
accounts. These are the emails not caught by my spam filters.

I can keep adding rules ad infinitum, but I don't ever want to accidentally
delete something from any lists as important as these, so I don't have
filters running on any evolt.org mailing lists.

Please, can we re-examine the decision to allow non-subscribers to post to
lists in light of the recent levels of spam, viruses, etc?

The last thing I want to see is the evolt.org lists being swamped with more
crap like this. It destroys enthusiasm, patience, and gives the appearance
of being highly  unprofessional.

The alternative will be to start attempting to filter lists, which could
devastate any attempts to make meaningful contributions.
