Since the soluton is bayes and the only reason l.d.o is not using bayes 
is "it can't," wouldn't it be useful to have a few people who can do 
'bayes' and distribute lists of Message IDs to ignore to the rest of us?

Is the recommended solution really for each of the 10,000 readers of the 
list to individually do their own filtering?
