We talked about doing that at one time, but decided
it would be best to install some spam filters rather
than penalize people who may have a valid bug/question
yet not on the list.
The misses on the spam filter seem to be low enough that
I don't think we need to do this.
I've started looking at a different spam filter;
spamassassin claims 99.94% spam effective.
If it appears to work... well we'll see.
