Because of FreeBSD lists being mainly unmoderated and open to posting without subscription, I notice some outright spams that slip through the list filters.
I believe (could possibly be wrong) that the lists have spam filters in place.
If a message has properties of spam, it will be held for a human moderator to see if it is spam (dump it) or not spam (let it through).
