Looks like this detail is outdated. I think new spam filters should be
used to silently discard the known spams. Ivan, what version are you
using? Newer version has more generic header_filter_rules to
hold/reject/discard such messages.
Developers, I think I will remove 'spam filters' from the detailed
description above but what is the 'routine list moderation'? I think
list-wide moderation was replaced by per-member moderation, right?
