Given all the troubles that currently experiences, and
the work sysadmin is currently doing to revamp everything, I'd
recommend waiting for the new setup to be inplace before to start
making changes.

Old messages will be removed during the migration to the new install,
and more generally spam-filtered (as jag mentioned). Then we'll have
the Mailman auto-purge feature.

Moving generic_nonmember_action to something else than 'accept' would
require some user education; lots of lists, including ours, have this
option set to 'accept' (although I started moderating one). Users tend
to think that spam ought to be filtered by the sysadmins without any
end-user intervention. If on the contrary we think that supervision is
necessary individually for each list (as I believe is the case with
Bob's system), we need to explain it.

Probably we should ask sysadmin for more information on what they plan
to do in this regard (I saw posts from jag on the Mailman list about a
'mark as spam' feature).
