Who assumes responsibility for the list administration?
Who makes the policy decisions?
Is there a standing policy for this list management?

The only somewhat positive response I heard on this was an
offer to host the list with limited administration, but it sounded
like SPAM would be reduced.

Note - I've reviewed a lot of the headers of incoming SPAM and
noticed a bunch "request@<maillists>" addressees! I.e., some of the
SPAMmers are actually subscribers!

Whoever adopts the list SHOULD a) only allow subscriber posts and
b) ignore all messages tagged by orbz.org as coming in from any
"black-holed" or "open relay" servers. c) filter out all incoming
messages through a local SPAM filter and run all remaining messages
through orbz.org.
