Equally, 50 seems far too high to me. I'd be surprised if 50 DDs are
active in mediation at one time.

I think that's unacceptable for three reasons: firstly, it repeats
work (all N subscribers updating their filters); secondly, the
archives become less useful; thirdly, someone behaving badly enough to
get banned from a list of mediators *really* needs to know that.

Clearly, such a list cannot be hosted by the project, because if
messages were appearing, they would not be censored. If such a list
is set up somewhere, I'll ask the listmasters to include it in any
SMTP error when a message is rejected. I don't think it can
necessarily be included in other filters without blowback.
