Hi Nico,
I just had an interesting idea to implement a way to get spam deleted
from @debian.org. Create an email address say killspam@debian.org. You
simply bounce/forward a debian.org email address to this address. A
script associated with killspam@debian.org parses the email and
determines which mailing list it came from and then it will delete this
mail from the archives and add the email to a 'spam' queue for
spamassassin to learn. It requires interested humans to patrol their
email and send in 'bug reports' on their @debian.org mailing lists.
