Default Removing Spam from the Listarchives (was: Debian mailing lists archives as mbox

Reports we get through the "Spam" buttons *are* reviewed by
humans. Indeed they have to be confirmed as spam by 3 humans (these
humas being DDs)

The great improvement Coord is working on would be having messages
bounced to the "Report spam" address treated exactly the same
way. That would be a major improvement as this would make spam
fighting everybody could do from one's own MUA in a single "click" or
keystroke////while readin gmailing lists.

I think he's saying that there's an extra piece of "is this spam?"
information that you can have access too if you'd like.

This is a generous offer, and I think it should be accepted. Perhaps
messages flagged as spam by the gmane reviewers could count as one of
the DD votes?

btw, the spam problem is just as large (or even larger, judging by what
makes it to my mailboxes) on Alioth lists. Is there any work on
extending the Debian solution to those?

Cheers,
