I believe Majordomo can already do that, but that it's not being used in
this case...

...because of just this reason: it's a real problem for those who read
the lists via local exploders or mail to news gateways. Much as I hate
spam, I'd rather put up with a couple spams now and then rather than be
forced to change how I read the lists.

The worst part of spam, after all, is the annoyance factor.  Annoying
the legitimate readers as a solution doesn't make sense to me.  Let's
punish the spammers, not the legitimate users!
