If the feature is that important to you, grab a book on python and
I'd like what you want, too. But there are higher priorities on my
list. It'll get done eventually, I guess. But the joy of open source
is that you not only can use it, you can improve it.
Oh, and you have a funky definition of spam, IMHO. Mailman isn't
generating spam. it's doing what it's supposed to do -- tell the
admin something is there for evaluation. That ain't spam.
Now, what you want mailman to do, which is be smart enough to
recognize and throw out spam, is a great idea. But it's easier said
than done. Just ask the guys writing anti-spam code for sendmail and
the other MTA's (which is, IMHO, where anti-spam stuff ought to be
anyway. Keep it off the site in the first place)

And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
and say 'Man, what are you doing here?'"
