I have a *slight* suspicion that the offenders will never read this, and 
indeed probably don't know that they've sent a message to a mailing 
list. The samba list has probably just made it onto one of the spam lists 
which people have been hawking lately.

Is one of the following options possible?

1)  Messages from non-list members are forwarded to a worthy soul(s) for 
    review before being placed on the list.

2)  Non-members who send to the list get a message explaining how to 

I think that would eliminate the ads.  What is the percentage of posters 
who are not list members?
