The point is, if something like that is the answer, great. Put it on
the server, and that's the end of it for everyone. Why should every
user set up the same filters to filter the junk mail?
I think that's a silly way to solve the problem, imo.

This 'spam problem' is a perpetual topic on both cypherpunks
and coderpunks. Coderpunks was originally a subscriber-only
(indeed, invitation-only) list, but that was dropped a long time
Personally, I would prefer to see end-user based filtering -
indeed, I deliberately chose a non-filtering cypherpunks
source for this reason. By filtering on the To: or cc: lines,
I get rid of nearly all spam.
We could easily get rid of the rest by Subject: line tags,
such as I have included above. This is used in some
Usenet groups to great effect. It's simple, and it works.
I'll probably subscribe to any new lists which pop up, but
the repeat traffic across lists is getting more annoying than
