Refuse, maybe, but bouncing is a problem (spam-by-backscatter). But
refusing such mail is only going to confuse the kind of subscriber who
is as "non-techie" as the ones you describe.
You can already do refuse such mail, I believe, but the configuration
is probably rather arcane.

Unfortunately, that's an awful lot of intelligence.

Disable digests. If that's unacceptable, the list in question might
be happier as a web forum, much as I hate to say it.
