Not a bad idea, but the problem is that we don't seem to get repeat
offenders. What seems to happen is every now and again someone with more
ambition that brains thinks that it's a good idea to use a mailing list to
send junk solicitations, and he is quickly disabused of that notion by
grouchy email replies and/or complaints to his system administrator.

Anybody got an idea on how we can screen these varmints out?

I can answer any question. "I don't know" is an answer. "I don't know
yet" is a better answer.
