The list blocks any un-registered users from sending mail. All new
members can be put on moderation for the first X posts, whatever X is.
All decent spam filters do a reverse DNS lookup of the SMTP server.
Shouldn't these three filters and moderation rules together be
sufficient to stop spam?

This mailing list has 'bugs'. Subscribers don't want an explanation of
why the bugs exist. They want the bugs fixed. Getting notifications of
events after the event has occurred or a few hours before the event is
not acceptable. Fixing this is higher priority than preventing
occasional lottery notifications.
