And again and again, the problem is not irate list members reposting spam 
nor the effectiveness of your filters.  The problem is the policy allowing 
non-subscribers to post to the list which gives every spammer who wants to 
use it an open relay to the entire subscriber list.  No matter how you 
tune your filters this will continue to be the problem.
