Debian list = spam and virus repeater/multiplexer

Hello deb users.

I got a little issue with receiving some of the mails through this

The entire list have been subjected to the inflow of spam, viruses,
auto-responders finding virus or spam, clueless users or someone who
just wants to mess around with the list.

Why isn't there a limitation that will only allow the mails to be
forwarded to the list if the originating email is subscribed to the
list?  Yes, I know, email address can be forged, not a complete
solution, yada yada yada, but it would stop at least some of the junk
coming through.  Another option could be moderating the off-list

Obviously, there might be some good reasons for this behavior that I
am not aware off (besides "it helps me build up my Bayes database and
test my av"), so please enlighten me.
