Yeah -- and if/when that does happen, we can move into
(a) phrased instructions: "reply with the word 'cat' in uppercase"
(b) images: "go to http://blah.com/foo.gif" and reply with the word in
That should make it too labour-intensive for the spammers, I'd say, esp.
if each list can have a different instruction phrase and password.
Unfortunately, it's still stuck in "idea" phase for me so far. :(
