Diverse schemes were suggested: none was implemented. Unfortunately, I'm not Extropy's list administrator (in case somebody sets up extropians-moderated and mails me the password I'd happy to moderate the thing, though), no Perl hacker, and have also other pressing matters to attend to.
As to authoritarian suggestions: at this point I don't care much about dogma anymore. Since yesterday I'm fooling with the procmail setup. If this will prove insufficient I'll dump extropians@. Of the diverse lists I'm on extropians@ is currently the one with the lowest ROI.
Despite being very familiar with the pattern of list decay I somehow expected this particular list to be exempt from it. Oh, well.
