Making only signed members to be able to post to the list might be
another solution. If spammers have to send mails, they will have to
register with that mail account (there by preventing them from
changing their mail accounts to post spam). If a reistered mail
account is found to be sending spams, we can remove that
membership/block all incomming mails from that account.
 With this approach, we will be making it more difficult for spammers
to send mails to the list.
