I think there was a discussion of this recently in the Debian Weekly News, so
you may want to read more there. I read that the Debian lists already do weed
out spam, but some still gets through and they are looking at ways of
filtering out even more. No one wants to change to a moderated or closed
mailing list, for good reason. I guess it's an annoyance that we just have to
deal with. I've had pretty good success reporting spams to the ISP's
abuse@... email address; they are usually very responsive (assuming you
report it and request action in a polite manner) and close or suspend
accounts as a result.
