[Mailman-Users] Persistent spam source!

I got the following from one of my list admins. Any suggestions as to
what might be going on? I've verified that the address in question is
indeed on the discard_these_nonmembers list and that the problem address
isn't already subscribed.
So we keep getting spam postings from jeffrey at elespectaddor.com
caught in the "needs approval" filter. He's not a member. I've
added him to the non-member filter under "List of non-member
addresses whose postings will be automatically discarded" and
banned him from membership. But half a dozen times a day we're
still getting requests to approve a spam posting when the
options I've set up are to discard anything from him.
How are these slipping through? And is there anything we can do
about it? It's not a disaster, but it sure is a pain.
Our MM version is 2.1.18-1.
