Yes I did think about this. The best solution would be a slight
modification to the listserv to be able to filter things out based on
the subject line. Most people posting on the list add an [ANN] header
to their mail, which is a good practice and could lead to
auto-acceptation of there mail. spamassassin adds a *** JUNK MAIL ***
header which could lead to an auto-reject. The rest could be subject
to moderation with the possibility to feed new emails to spamassassin
to make it's filtering more accurate.

I would be surprised if no one ever thought about that... It's about
the same work flow as in a email client running some smart spam filter
(Thunderbird for instance).
