I like the way it is, because it clearly marks what is (probably) spam, and
all I have to do is put 1 rule in my mailer that moves everything with a
subject containing "**SPAM**" to the trash. However, it relieves the burden
on the mailist admins to "clear out the inbox", and lets through messages
that are legit but would otherwise get bounced (like the XXX example).
Basically, this is the coolest approach I've seen a list take so far. Mad
props to whoever came up with the idea!
