Then you'd have to subscribe to the list if you wanted to even ask a
simple question. It works, but it's a hassel.
I'd say that any time a host sends a spam to the list, it is blocked at
the majordomo level (or maybe even the SMTP level) from ever sending email
to freebsd.org again.
One tip I've liked is always blocking mail from dialup hostnames, like
*.da.uu.net or *.dial-access.att.net. It works 99% of the time because
most legit email goes through the user's SMTP host.
