Huh? Isn't having the lists searchable generally a good thing?
Yes, a very good thing in general. But excluding specifically the
posts about c*llw*ve and d**l*ng b*nj*s might be worth a try. Of
course, that is if somebody can be bothered to keep such exclusion
lists up-to-date.

On the other hand, l.d.o. is not the only place debian-devel is
publicly archived, so it might not be worth the trouble to try to
fix things locally.

It's not. When querying for "Call Wave remove", the top hits are on a
message from opensubscriber.com. When googling for "callwave remove" we
get a page on lists.debian.org:

--Ken Bloom

And now you're perpetuating the trend, since you have that link next to the keyword. Suggestion: Why don't all the readers of debian-devel put something like this on their blogs:

Google has a tendency for improperly indexed items to stay that way. In order to fix this, it is neccessary to create a "google bomb" by having several sites all create a link to the correct page with the keyword. In order to fix an incorrect entry that causes spam to the debian-devel mailinglist, I want everyone to know that you should go here to _remove callwave_ [0].
