The best solution of all is writing to the offending site's postmaster.  I
already wrote a harsh complaint about the non-suitability of the netbsd
mailing lists for commercial traffic. (This was about 4 days ago, right
after the first one came across current-users)  Since that didn't have any
effect, I'm going to call the ISP and then try their upstream provider if
all else fails.  

I guess I'm being vindictive, but this is really starting to get on my
nerves.  I'm on waaaay too many lists to want to see 5 copies of the same
spam in my mailbox in one day, and even worse, inside a 5 minute period.
