an interesting potential solution, which would also increase the web
of trust,

might be to reject e-mails signed with 'unknown' keys.

a subscriber could submit a key when joining,
(and have the key 'banned' by the list if it turned out that the subscriber
was spamming), 

(but then we'd all have to sign ... ;-)
