I find this a bit extreem. What if my domain happens to be one of the
offenders ?

Personally, I do not care much about the spam. I get it anyway, just use
the delete key (and perhaps not use an MS mail program :-).

If something needs to be done, use subscription, like most list I am on do.
Seems to work fine there. Team-Ada is about advocacy, but -I think- not an
advocacy tool in itself.

Moderation would IMO be bad. A lot of work for the moderator, slows things
down, and is a great OT discussion stimulator.
