If list write access was changed to Subscribers Only:
  - List could silently discard such spam.
  - Postmaster@  (& webmaster@ weeding web archives) would have less work.
  - Less individual need to select spam phrases to copy to personal filters
    (& less time searching WTF dialect American above meant in English ;-).

Newbies would be told "subscribe before posting" in all of:
	Automatic list bounce response. 
Only clueless, lazy, & spammers might be lost. A net gain.
