You just explained why mechanical filtering doesn't work for you on
lists discussing spam.  The same reasons apply here.

A way to get what you want is turn this into a moderated list, with
all postings held for moderator review.  That's easy to do.  Alas,
finding people willing to volunteer their time to _do_ such review,
around the clock, every day, is not easy to do.

For example, do you want this enough to volunteer to do it?  Me neither.
