We got annoyed by the amount of spam which was send for 'moderation' at 
that time. Given the specialization of the -docs list, subscription-only 
seems OK, although it still feels like isolating ourselves from outside 

Infrastructure/mail people: what are the spam countermeasures currently 
in use for incoming mail from non-subscribers sent to moderated lists? 
Is spam passed on for human moderation as-is, or is there some filtering 
(like SpamAssassin) prior to that?
