Hi Jan,

We suffered the same spam problem on the GeoVRML list. We moved list to the
listar manager and required that only members of the list can post to the
list - if a member posts, then it goes directly through with no approval
required. If a non-member posts, then the administrator gets the message and
can approve or deny the post. This has proven very successful so far. It may
be a less burdensome solution than having to approve every post (perhaps
this is what you meant below, just thought I'd mention it though).
