Today there seems to be as much spam as real mail, and more meta-spam
than either.

Every other list I'm on limits posting to subscribers which stops the
spam dead. Nearly all the spam is just blasted out at random and the
list's address happens to be one of the million targets.  It's very
rare in my experience for a spammer to go to the effort of signing up
for a list to spam through it.
