All my publically advertised mailing lists (and one private one whose
existance was "outed" by a jerk) are now set to accept members posts only,
and to bounce anything that isn't from a member.  Yeah, it means the users
have to learn to stop sending email from their other accounts unless they
are willing to subscribe that account to the list and set it to "no mail",
but it sure lessens my burden.

The thing I've noticed, particularly about Usenet, that while as a
welcome break from work it is refreshing and interesting, when you've
got bugger all else to do it kinda loses its appeal.  -- C Speed
