Wouldn't it be great if there were some sort of rating system for
subscribers to the list? It would be nice to be able to vote on each
message that gets posted. Those getting a thumbs up vote boost the score
of the subscriber. Those getting a thumbs down would lower it. Newbies
would start off at 0.

The subscriber's score would automatically be prepended to the subject
line so you could see at a glance whether a message was worth it to
you to read or not.

Of course there's the delete command, but a scoring system would prevent
run-on threads arguing over senseless matters as promulgated over and over
again by certain subscribers.

Oh well, I don't think Majordomo is equipped to handle this sort of thing.
I guess we're doomed to being annoyed.
