There are several solutions:
1. Systematically freeze out all of the domains which provide free
2. Punt the individual offenders as soon as they make a bad post.
3. Moderate all posts or only moderate the first half dozen or so
posts from each new subscriber.
4. Require an application from new subscribers. Ask for real name,
phone number and occupation. Ask a few simple questions which
demonstrate an interest or possibly their skill level in the list
I use an application for one of my lists. IMHO, a simple application
can be very effective.
