I am not sure which mailinglist software is currently being used to run
this mailinglist, I haven't even tried to figure out. However, most of
the software, like mailman, allows to configure it to only post messages
send to the list that are sent by subscribers - and dropping or handing
over to the moderator the messages that are sent by non-subscribers.

Using this setting would help quite a lot. The "negative" side-effect of
this is that non-subscribers are no longer able to messages to the list
or not without the approval of a moderator. I don't think it is a big
problem (requiring subscribtion requires people to read a bit more about
the list and maybe it's FAQ).
