I agree. I'm in favour of an open list. The reason I was proposing adding a
header, was simply because it is clear that others are not happy. I get far
more mail from people complaining about spam on the list than actual spam. So
if adding a header would reduce the complaints (I hardly notice the spam),
then I would be whole heartedly in favour of it. (And yes I'm willing to
write a plugin if necessary)
