One word: SpamAssassin.

Blocking spam at the list level is nice, but false positives are inevitable
with spam filters, and the administrative overhead of screening list spam
can be daunting.

Even if this list managed to filter all spam anyway, you're still likely
to get it from other sources; personal / local solutions like SA are
probably the most pragmatic solution in the end (not that they do anything
about the wasted bandwidth, but everything is a tradeoff).

In any case, it's nice to see that other humans read this list.

Hello, fellow human :)
