[Mailman-Users] Trapping posts with no subject, and an apology

I posted earlier about problems with "(no subject)" postings to my lists,
not complaining about such to mailman-users, but I wasn't very clear in
what I said so my apologies to anyone who may have been offended.
To restate my problem and renew the request for help (if anyone is still
talking to me, that is :):
I run a number of lists of which two are precursors to wikis, that is the
message threads are copied into the discussion areas of wikis for analysis
and distillation. One day when I grow up I'm hoping to automate this but
for now it means me copying & pasting.
A couple of recalcitrants continue to post without subjects, which makes my
transcription task that much more difficult. I've asked them nicely, both
privately & publicly, but it seems they are just too darned idle to bother.
Accordingly, I would like to 'encourage' them to mend their ways by trapping
such posts and rejecting them. I've tried putting a spam rule as per the
faq, trapping "subject containing .*(no subject)" but no workie.
The cases I'd like to trap are:
1. empty subject
2. (no subject)
Is there an easy way? Am I (as has been known on occasion :) missing
