Since they're all essentially moderated the same, we'll need to put such 
a notice in a centralized location (or, it would be nice to have it 
there, anyhow...)

Overall, predicting random spam such as the "moneyworld" episode is 
difficult.  It's done once, then they disappear, usually because their 
ISP receives enough complaints that they're shut off.

Jonathan Stone and I were working on that... I came up with something 
that worked, but was just ugly as sin because of the current bus.h 
interface.  I'm working on a proposal to alter the bus.h interface that 
would make the job a lot easier, and make drivers more portable.  Keep 
watching tech-kern...
