Yes.  Questions@ has some un- self- disciplined kids/ drunks/ trolls,
who degrade this list's signal to noise ratio.

They could be reduced by a combo. of eg:
	- forcible unsub, & black list,
	- block of anon. remailer domains
	- making this list "subscribtion required before posting".  
		(which would make it harder for newbies fresh to
		FreeBSD, but we need some solution)

I suggest others too should complain to <postmaster at freebsd.org>
appending offenders bad postings, & let postmaster decide action.

The only other option I can think of is to personaly extend my
procmail filter on my own questions@ incoming stream, to delete all
postings from listed individuals.  
	Many others could do similar, but massive inefficiency, &
	newbies couldn't, & the noise on the raw unfiltered list &
	in web achives would damage FreeBSD.
