Ignore it may be the best answer. These enthusiasms come and go in waves
and I think Debian as a project is congenitally incapable of sustained
effort towards any particular goal let alone a non-technical one. In a
few weeks attentions will wander and it will become another ghost list
with naught but the fading echos of mortgage spams.
 I must say the listmasters have done a pretty good job lately of
getting rid of most of the spam but some still gets through and you
notice it on the quiet lists.
