I've got one particular list that's being spammed to death
and I have to get on the web to discard all the postings. I've
only once had a legitimate posting from a non-subscriber
(she'd changed email addresses without fixing her subscription)
so I don't mind tossing it all.  This would help, yes.
I wouldn't say I'm /dying/ for it...
