I have a better idea. Why not set up a sister-list, say e2e-spam solely for the purpose of discussing whether or not we should address the issue of spam on e-2-e?

I the interests of ending the perpetual spam discussion, might it be
possible to set up a sister-list, say e2e-m, which is a moderated version of
This would seem to allow a compromise in which spam, and meta-spam could be
avoided to whatever degree people are comfortable with. e2e-m could accept
only posts from the e2e listserve, and pass all subscriber posts back up to
the parent list. The sublist would be higher-latency (due to the moderator
problem), but satisfy the needs of those who are willing to take the delay.
Unless I am missing something obvious as to why this would be a bad idea
(wouldn't be the first time), it would seem all that is needed is a
volunteer to moderate (or comparable cunning moderating solution). ;)
